Goodbye EMERs

Recommended Posts

From 1st September Electrical & Mechanical Engineering Regulations (EMERs) entered a 4-month period of obsolescence. If there are no justifications received to maintain any they will be rendered obsolete after this period.

 

There are only 350 EMERs remaining & these have not been updated in 10 years. This list can be downloaded from http://www.allanwebb.co.uk/lecomportfolio/

Nothing could beat the EMER publications relating to vehicles and ancillaries, when the AESP's came in they were sadly lacking and were mainly a compilation of manufacturer's publications that did not go deep enough with the information.

The reason given was "To avoid potential safety issues".

 

Just because something has "not been updated in 10 years" doesn't mean it is no longer valid or worthwhile. The texts of most major religions have not been updated in 10 years but they still seem to serve a useful purpose for many people.

 

I can't think of any procedures in connection my vehicles that I will now abandon.

I ran through the list and thought some of the workshop procedures titles would still be of use in this day and age. I remember the Tech Library in the workshops I was at, had EMER's going back to WW2 and there was even a manual for a early 1920's Dennis lorry there ........ that would have predated the establishment so no bounds how it came to be there!

I think you'll find that a number of current AESPs still refer back to EMERs; the parts of Bulldogs that are common to the original FV432s are a case in point.

Andy so I wonder if they will "avoid potential safety issues" by rehashing those EMERs as AESPs?

 

Vast numbers of Series 3 Rover EMERs in the series WV Q 020 etc were converted to AESPs in the octad 2320-D-100, seemed an awful waste of effort.

 

As you say many AESPs refer back to EMERs, particularly EMER WORKSHOPS. Will some of those have to be AESPed & the AESPs that make references to EMERs themselves re-written?

Even if it doesn't work it's cheap! The Cheaper the better - I saw some army clothing a few months back it said "made in China"...await the day when things are made in Russia (sorry got carried away) :-)

I see that they are employing an outside firm to do this, probably end up as a cock up ;)

It always used to amuse me that our strategic missile submarines run on Russian bearings ...

Many years back there was a big hoo haa in one of the tabloid newspapers about Russian bearings being used in Chieftain tanks.

Didn't that involve Scorpion Tanks Richard? It was to do with Wheel Bearing being used in the CRV(T) Range.

As a lot of us already know, Ball Bearing race sets. Are available from many manufacturers. & they have equivilents to each others Bearing Part Numbers.

 

I feel this is how it got out, Alvis Possibly couldn't get the original Bearing sets any more. & turned to another Equivelent set. Manufactured by Different company. And sourced through a specialist bearing supplier.

 

The Fact that this company was Russian, was completely overlooked!.....

I think personally, It was a case of: 'We need X. And this other Bearing has identical dimentions. & Qualities. We will use these'.........

 

And some Hack from a Newspaper got hold of this tit bit of information. & blew it up into a front page story!...

 

Bottom line: Supply & Demand I think! :-\
