Overview

Aimed at boatowners rather than experienced mechanics, The Adlard Coles Book of Outboard Motors
is a boon to anyone who puts to sea with an outboard engine. Covering
both 2 and 4 stroke engines, the book explains how even the
most sophisticated of modern outboards use simple processes to convert
fuel to power, and then looks at each of the sub-systems that allow
those processes to take place:


- the fuel system


- the ignition system


- cooling and lubrication


- the electrical system


- transmission and controls





The book includes sections on routine maintenance and fault finding,
and even has a photo sequence showing the vital first aid required to
save the life of an outboard engine that has been dropped overboard!
