apply to automatic transmissions and powertrain subassemblies and 
parts, transmission shafts and cranks (duty rate ranges from free to 
2.5%) for the foreign-status materials/components noted below and in 
the existing scope of authority. Customs duties also could possibly be 
deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment.

labels; steel chains; steel torx screws; steel hexagon screws; steel 
hexalobular driving screws; steel hexalobular and hexalobular screws;
