This hands-on guide to diesel engines renders its subject more user-friendly than ever before. Every step of every procedure is illustrated, so that users can work from the illustrations alone. The troubleshooting charts in the second chapter are followed by system-specific chapters, allowing readers to quickly diagnose problems. Although part of the Sailboat Library, this book applies to any marine diesel.

Peter Compton's dream of bluewater cruising finally became reality when, after 20 years in the Aerospace industry, he quit his job in 1986 to build a small catamaran and sail south with his family in search of sun and sand. Some 11 years and 20,000 miles later, the Comptons have settled in the British Virgin Islands. With a background in troubleshooting that includes several years as Engineering Department Head analyzing complex system designs, Peter now applies these skills to the marine diesels he deals with every day. Peter's current project is an independent and informative website that covers every aspect of marine diesels. Visit it at www.boatdiesel.com.
