    OUTBOARD ENGINES, Maintenance, Troubleshooting and Repair. 2nd edition.
    By Edwin R. Sherman. Hbk, 190mm x 238mm, 148 pages, monochrome photographs and drawings.
    Four-stroke outboards and exotic, computer-controlled fuel-injection systems have become mainstream. What hasn't changed, however, is that proper manintenance and an intimate knowledge of the inner workings of your outboard are prerequisites for trouble-free boating, and a maximum engine longevity. Outboard Engines fills the gap between owner's manuals that don't even tell you how to change a spark plug and professional shop guides that detail how to do a complete rebuild. It covers basic operating principles, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting techniques for two- and four-stroke engines from 2 to 300 horsepower.

    With Ed Sherman's help you'll be perfectly capable of performing your own engine maintenance, repairing minor problems, and diagnosing problems you can't tackle yourself. His methodical approach can save you a world of frustration- and peril - as well as weekend mechanics' charges.
