Get the owners manual, repair manual and parts manual for your engine They are usually very good. General books are ...well general and may be a good non specific education.


Lots of stuff on the web these days.

Ten years I joined boatdiesel and bought a copy of Peter's book through his website. It is general and as I recall doesn't cover some of the things that do in modern, high output diesels: over propping, poorly designed exhaust system allowing sea water to back up, etc.


I learned much more by following every post related to my engine on boatdiesel for the past ten years.

Thanks David.
I've started sifting through Boatdiesel and that's where I saw the book.
Lot's to learn...
