This quote is also from my addendum (supplement) to my first report (continued from previous day's quote):
I wrote the revision, and also noted on the revision that there were no instructions in the AMM (Airplane Maintenance Manual) to replace the clamps, so I had inspected the work to the AIPC instead. I also stated that the rework instructions were in the (engine vendor) MM (Maintenance Manual), I believe. To make a much too long story finally end, the disposition for my revision came back to state to remove and replace the newly discrepant clamp per the AMM! Yep, same disposition as revision 0 that was incorrect, except the engineer had actually called out a section of the AMM in his new disposition, whereas the whole AMM document number was listed in the original disposition and us line inspectors were supposed to fish for the right section of the AMM to do the inspection to. I looked at the AMM section the engineer had called out. It only applied to Boeing tubes and clamps, not the vendor's. Oh well. I had tried to get the message across in my revision that the vendor MM applied, not Boeing’s--to no avail. I decided not to try again as that would likely be similarly fruitless, and just result in me inspecting yaks at Boeing Siberia. I left the engineer to his permanent "wet paper bag" home, and moved on.
