    I would check again as that practice continued at least into the 1990s. The numbers are small and often hard to see.

    That Suburban has the original Schwinn Approved GT-100 derailleur, unfortunately those are notorious for breaking the main pivot spring, which causes the derailleur to lose tension and flop forward.
