Overview

The Adlard Coles Book of Diesel Engines by Melanie Bartlett

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.
