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, how to look after it, and takes into account developments in engine technology.The book 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. She 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.This fifth edition has been thoroughly updated and illustrated with new full-colour photos and diagrams. In particular the Common Rail Injection System is covered, which governs how the fuel system is constructed, combined with the use of electronics (as opposed to mechanics) to control it thereby meeting the need for cleaner, greener engines to meet emissions regulations.'Strongly recommended for anyone who has anything to do with the diesel engine' Nautical Magazine'A winner' Classic Boat'The next best thing to taking the course itself' Motor Boats Monthly

Notă biografică

Mel Bartlett learned to sail as a child on the Thames, and then followed a varied career that included serving with the Royal Navy, working as a yacht skipper at the Island Cruising Club, running an engineering business in Cornwall, and ten years as Technical Editor of Motor Boat and Yachting.


This edition has been thoroughly updated and illustrated with full-colour photographs and diagrams.
Explains fuel, air, cooling, oil, electrical, propeller, transmission and control systems in short, jargon-free paragraphs.
'It is loaded with 'things to do' and good advice, and has an extremely useful fault-finding chapter. This book is small, yet comprehensive- and it could be a big cost saver for the Diesel owner.'
'The book is fashioned in an eye-pleasing way with colour photographs to guide you through the process...This is a good primer for any skipper.'
'Whilst intended for yacht owners it could nonetheless prove of value and interest to fishermen and a very good introduction to diesel engines for anyone with an interest in them.'
