The RYA Book of Diesel Engines

The RYA Book of Diesel Engines

by TimBartlett (Author)


Based on the RYA's Diesel Engine Course, this text explains how a diesel engine works and how to look after it. This second edition is revised to take into account developments in engine technology since the first edition was published, and contains a new section on how to winterise an engine. It is written in a non-technical language to appeal to all, and is aimed at boat-owners rather than mechanics. Hints, tips and faultfinding tables are included.
