Marine Diesel Engine Theory and Maintenance Course  

This one day course is designed to provide you with a basic understanding of how your Marine Diesel engine operates and how it should be maintained.


Theory and Practical Demonstration Sessions.

The course is conducted in the shop with new, used and broken parts to handle and view during the   theory portion of the presentation. You will become familiar with everything that is inside and attached to a marine diesel engine. All associated systems such as – fuel, exhaust, cooling, transmissions, propeller shafts, engine mounts and alignments etc. will be covered.


Limited Class Size – Personalized Training

Due to the practical demonstration aspects of this course – Class size is limited to 12 people. Participants are encouraged to bring along their own engine information/manuals etc. so I may answer any specific questions regarding your diesel engine.

During the afternoon practical demonstrations We will : jump start a diesel, operate engines on test stands, bleed fuel injection systems, adjust valves, change water pump impellers, winterize engines etc.   Anyone wishing to participate may – so dress appropriately as you will encounter diesel fuel and engine oil. Hand cleaner and shop towels are supplied. I cannot make you into a Diesel Mechanic in a day but you will leave with a very comfortable understanding of what you CAN, should and should not do with your Marine Diesel Engine.

Courses are held in a warm, bright, clean shop in Port Credit
