  Diesel Troubleshooter  
  by Don Seddon  

Reviewed in SAILING February 2006:

Many sailors on many boats have crossed oceans without aid of mechanical power - but for most of us, an engine is still regarded as the most basic, most essential piece of safety equipment. And engines are usually diesel. So the smart thing to do is get to know your diesel, and then to treat it as it should be treated, so that when the moment comes, it will respond readily.
With easy-to-read text and very clear black and white pictures, this book will help you to understand diesel engines, fuel, air, cooling lubrications, electrical systems, maintenance etc., before going on to troubleshoot any faults that may occur. Thus, it becomes a very handy ready-reference book to have aboard.
