How to Install a New Diesel Engine
By Peter Cumberlidge
How to choose and install a new diesel engine, whether the work will be done by the owner or a boatyard or engineer. Covers selecting the right size and type of engine, deciding on transmission and stern gear, designing new engine bearers, fitting fuel tanks, filters and exhaust systems, installing electrics, instruments and engine controls, evaluating marine batteries and charge control systems, choosing the right propeller and fitting sacrificial anodes. With the new engine installed and sea trials complete, Peter Cumberlidge looks at how auxiliary equipment can be fitted to take full advantage of the available power: adding a new hot water system, ducted cabin heating, an engine-driven fridge and a hydraulic anchor winch.
