                    Prestolite B.1.D. Retrofit

 Dear Mr. Kenny:

 We are attaching a revised B.1.0. retrofit listing of customers with the
 Wells Manufacturing Company corrected to the new sales number. The
 previous reports given to you for Wells Manufacturing inadvertently
 showed their IBM number rather than their sales number.
 Would you please so notify the proper agencies of this correction.

 If you require any additional information, please let us know.

                                                  Very truly yours,
