Aimed at boatowners rather than experienced mechanics, The Adlard Coles Book of Outboard Motors is a boon to anyone who puts to sea with an outboard engine. Covering both 2 and 4 stroke engines, the book explains how even the most sophisticated of modern outboards use simple processes to convert fuel to power, and then looks at each of the sub-systems that allow those processes to take place: - the fuel system - the ignition system - cooling and lubrication - the electrical system - transmission and controls The book includes sections on routine maintenance and fault finding, and even has a photo sequence showing the vital first aid required to save the life of an outboard engine that has been dropped overboard! `Explains in clear, jargon-free English how an outboard works and how to look after it' Kelvin Hughes `An excellent book, well thought out and well written' Motorboats Monthly
