Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Engine and Transmission Mountings Mobile App
The primary purpose of the Heavy Goods Vehicle Inspection: Engine and Transmission Mountings
How does it work?
mobile app is to support staff in conducting the annual testing of vehicles. The app is useful to those responsible for the maintenance of large commercial vehicles so that they remain well informed on the current minimum legal standards for roadworthiness. It must be emphasised that these are minimum acceptable standards, which do not necessarily allow for further deterioration when the vehicle is in service.
This inspection applies to all vehicles, including Hybrid Electric Vehicles. Where there is separate power train equipment this should be treated as an engine/transmission. There will only be a failure under this item if a mounting is no longer capable of performing its function of location and support. Serious fractures in clutch or bell housings which affect the security of the engine or gearbox are a reason for failure.
