Format: Paperback
I wanted to improve my basic understanding of the engineering side of a narrowboat that I obtained 12 months ago. This book has done that for me since it covers more than just how a diesel engine works and will give me more confidence in the future when doing routine maintenance or troubleshooting. Some sections are possibly a bit simplistic (e.g. how gears work), but sections on routine maintenance are well put together, including instructions for adjusting valve clearances that I had not considered a requirement before purchasing the book.

Clearly written in plain English, a good reference for novices and experienced alike, could save you a fortune on repair bills, and teaches you how to maintain and avoid engine breakdowns.

Not quite what I was looking for as it relates to marine rather than car or truck, but I did learn a bit from it.Was worth the money!
