Diesel Repair Book


My Calder Diesel Guide was ruined last year by a leak in the boat. I'm thinking of getting a different book and was wondering if anyone (who might own Calder and this one) would have any opinions.

Book Info:
"Know Your Boat's Diesel Engine: An Illustrated Guide to Maintenance, Troubleshooting, and Repair" by Andrew Simpson

Peter Compton's Troubleshooting Marine Diesels is my #1 go to book. That and a service manual usually does the trick. I hardly ever open Calder's anymore, although I wouldn't want to be without it.


You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
