Now in its 4th edition, this accessible guide explains how a diesel engine works and how to look after it.
In clear, jargon-free language, this guide – aimed at boat-owners rather than mechanics – explains how a diesel engine works and how to look after it, and takes into account developments in engine technology. Based on the RYA’s one-day Diesel Engine course, Tim Bartlett explains how the engine uses simple processes to convert fuel to power, and then looks at the various sub-systems that allow those processes to take place. He also takes a look at tools and provides helpful hints, tables and troubleshooting checklists. There are colour photographs and illustrations throughout.
