Marine Diesel Basics
by Berwick, Dennison
This highly visual guide will help you deal confidently with your diesel engine. Berwick introduces you to all parts of the system–from the topsides’ fuel fill to the shaft and prop. More than 300 illustrations guide you through seasonal engine maintenance, winter lay-up and protection, storing your engine in the tropics, spring recommissioning, and more. "Seeing is understanding" underlies the approach, here. Every procedure begins with a list of required tools and equipment, including personal safety and cleaning equipment. This book is ideal for absolute beginners and makes clear what they can and cannot do safely.
