This thoroughly updated softcover text strikes an excellent balance between hands-on practice and theory of diesel operation and maintenance requirements of manufacturers. Diesel Mechanics equips students with state-of-the-art procedures and techniques needed to diagnose, repair, troubleshoot, and maintain diesel engines in the real world. It features the latest methods for working on modern control systems and provides in-depth information on fuel injection systems and electronically-controlled engines. The text includes maintenance and repair coverage of stationary, marine, and truck engines. A new, two-color format contains more than 1,000 illustrations and improved line drawings that help students visualize important concepts. The correlated Workbook, which includes nearly 200 illustrations, provides hands-on shop assignments that parallel and complement such text assignments as how to analyze diesel component failures. The Instructor's Planning Guide provides an integrated plan for using the program in the classroom and shop. It also includes lesson plans, detailed student assignments, and answers to text and workbook questions and assignments. A computer test bank will be available.
