Dear Mr. Reynolds,

In your letter dated January 21, 2008, you requested a tariff classification ruling on behalf of your client, The Timken Company of Canton, Ohio.

The items concerned are two (2) Planet Pinion Shafts (Parts # QN-76729, QN-65362). They are small, steel shafts that provide the center axis for planet gears in a planetary gear set utilized in a transmission under drive.

Planet Pinion Shaft QN-76729 measures 1 ½ inches in height and 5 mm in diameter and Planet Pinion Shaft QN-65362 measures 1 ¾ inches in height and 10 mm in diameter.

The applicable classification subheading for the Planet Pinion Shafts (Parts # QN-76729, QN-65362) will be 8708.99.6890, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), which provides for “Parts of motor vehicles : Other parts : Other: Other: Other: Other: Other parts for power trains: Other”. The rate of duty will be 2.5%.

Duty rates are provided for your convenience and are subject to change. The text of the most recent Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States and the accompanying duty rates are provided on the World Wide Web at http://ww.usitc.gov /tata/hts/.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
