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
