Learn about your Diesel Engine as a private individual. RYA schools can book me to teach a course. I ran the Diesel Engine Maintenance course at the Southampton Boat Show last year (2012), these were very well received by all attendees.
With experience of a large number of engines and installations Simon is well placed to talk about your vessels Diesel engine installation. Simon installed a fully marinised Ford FSD 2500 (naturally aspirated Ford Transit) engine along with a Hurth gearbox into his Gaff Schooner.
Simon’s belief is that above all else a marine diesel installation should be reliable and easily serviced and maintained by the crew. To this end Simon is happy to talk about Fuel Tanks, Filters, polishing systems. Remote mounted Oil filters and oil coolers. Sensible mounting options for raw water filters and much much more.
