ok i am having an argument with our manufacturing engiener whom will not sign a drawing because of the following.
1. red lines were given from the as built condition.
2. multiple bubbles were placed on other pages.

- the original --pre redline page-- had (example:) item bubble to connector with pin bubble underneath with a 4x next to the pin bubble.

well due to the fact i have only one of these connectors. i kept the original bubble for the connector on main sheet, then ref the bubble on new red line location.
then i removed the pin bubble from the original sheet and put them with the ref connector and other items on red line sheet.

so now the main sheet shows original item identification number to that connector. he says he wont sign it. and i have to prove that multiple bubbles of the same part are to be referenced. i have been searching for hours for this text i remember seeing but cant find it. anyone have any direction i can go with this one.  please help me find this text.

I'm not sure the ASME Y14.100 series have a lot in them about 'balloons' on assembly drawings.  About 5-7 years ago we did some digging on related issues and couldn't find a definitive statement as I recall.

ASME Y14.24 would be where I'd start looking but I'm not overly optimistic.
