The new edition of The Adlard Coles Book of Diesel Engines is aimed at boat owners rather than experienced mechanics. In clear, jargon-free English it explains how a diesel engine works and how to look after it, whilst taking 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 convert fuel to power, and then looks at the various sub-systems that allow those processes to take place. He also advises on tools, winterising and provides hints, tips and helpful fault-finding tables.

Systems covered include: fuel, air, cooling, oil, electrical, propeller and transmission and control.
