The Adlard Coles Book of Diesel Engines is aimed at boatowners rather than experienced mechanics. In clear, jargon-free English it explains how a diesel engine works, and how to look after it, and takes into account developments in engine technology. This fourth edition has been thoroughly updated and illustrated with new full-colour photos and diagrams. Tim Bartlett explains how the engine uses simple processes to covert fuel to power, and then looks at the various sub-systems that allow those processes to take place. He also advises on tools, winterizing and provides hints, tips and helpful fault-finding tables. Systems covered include: fuel, air, cooling, oil, electrical, propeller and transmission and control. `Strongly recommended for anyone who has anything to do with the diesel engine' Nautical Magazine `A winner' Classic Boat `The next best thing to taking the course itself' Motor Boats Monthly
