Diesel engines have long been the favoured power units for the demanding environment of small craft: motor cruisers, launches, yachts and fishing boats. This "how to" book deals with all essential aspects of these engines through an easily understandable text backed up with numerous line illustrations and photographs. Attention is given to design, installation and marinization because these vary from boat to boat. Also covered in a practical manner are electrical systems, propellers and stem gears, with advice on maintenance and fault finding. Engine problems on the water are potentially risky and the hints and recommendations provided here will go a long way towards avoiding being let down by a boat's propulsion system. The text and extensive line illustrations and photographs cover the most common makes and types of diesel engine used in small craft, including Lister Enfield, Perkins, Sabre, Bukh, Ford and Volvo Penta.show more
