Diesel Engine Classes?

Hi All,

Does anyone have any advice on diesel engine repair classes/seminars? I know the very basics of diesel engines, but I'm starting to get sick of calling a mechanic for anything more than an impeller change. Does Yanmar do seminars?

Im in Boston, and looking for a night or weekend class where I could expand my knowledge.

Hi Jeff,
First, welcome to Cruisers Forum!

You may want to call around to some of the local engine dealers and yacht clubs to see if they know of any classes. Perhaps call some of the local community colleges as well. You may want to Google "diesel engine classes Massachusetts".

Very interesting election your state just had!

Annapolis School of Seamanship (here in Annapolis, naturally), puts on an excellent, hand-on, two-day seminar for beginners and advanced.

The beginning class is a great overview and covers trouble-shooting and general maintenance.
