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.
