Marine Diesel Engines: Maintenance, Troubleshooting, and Repair by Nigel Calder


Marine Diesel Engines: Maintenance, Troubleshooting, and Repair by Nigel Calder free pdf download.

For very good reasons, the diesel engine is now the overwhelming choice for sailboat auxiliaries, and it is becoming more popular in sportfishing boats, highperformance cruisers, and large sportboats. Diesels have an unrivaled record of reliability in the marine environment; they have better fuel economy than gasoline engines; they are more efficient at light and full loads; they emit fewer harmful exhaust pollutants; they last longer; and they are inherently safer because diesel fuel is less volatile than gasoline. 

Despite its popularity, the diesel engine is still something of a mystery, in large part because of the differences that distinguish it from the more familiar gasoline engine. Boatowners are frequently nervous about carrying out maintenance and repairs on a diesel. This is surprising because in many respects diesels are easier to understand and maintain than gasoline engines. The first objective of this book, then, is to explain how a diesel engine works, to define new terms, and to lift this veil of mystery. 

If the owner of a diesel engine has a thorough understanding of how it works, the necessity for certain crucial aspects of routine maintenance and the expensive consequences of habitual neglect will be fully appreciated. Properly maintained, most diesel engines will run for years without trouble, which leads me to my second objective—to drive home the key areas of routine maintenance. If and when a problem arises, it normally falls into one or two easily identifiable categories. The ability to visualize what is going on inside an engine frequently enables you to go straight to the heart of a problem and to rapidly find a solution, without making blind stabs at it. My third objective is to outline troubleshooting techniques that promote a logical, clearheaded approach to problem solving. 

The fourth objective of the book is to outline various maintenance, overhaul, and repair procedures that can be reasonably undertaken by an amateur mechanic. It also describes one or two that should not be attempted but which might become necessary in a dire emergency. (Cruising sailors, in particular, sometimes must tackle repairs that they would never even consider when they are ashore. As a fellow sailor, I have at all times tried to keep the rather special needs of cruisers in the forefront of my mind when writing and revising this book.) Major mechanical breakdowns and overhauls are not included. This kind of work can only be carried out by a trained mechanic. 

The book ends with a consideration of some criteria to assist you in the selection of a new engine for any given boat and of correct installation procedures. Much of the last chapter may throw some light on problems with an engine already installed. There is no reason for you as a boatowner not to have a long and trouble-free relationship with a diesel engine. All you need is to set up the engine correctly in the first place, pay attention to routine maintenance, learn to spot the early warning signs of impending trouble, and know how to correct small problems before they become large ones.
