Marine diesel maintenance course in Port Credit
Saturday 11 March 2017, 09:00am - 04:30pm

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.

The course consists of both 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.

NOTE: Due to the practical demonstration aspects of this course – Class size is limited to 12 persons! 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 a engine on test stand, bleed fuel injection systems, adjust valves, change water pump impellers, winterize engine 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.

The shop is heated but not room temperature hot. The shop door will be open for a while when we run the engines in the afternoon. Dress warmly including footwear.

Class starts at 9 AM sharp as we have a lot to cover!  We will continue until approx. 4:30 pm or until everyone has had their fill of fun!  Please arrive a little early to register and pick up your text book. Complementary coffee and muffins available in the AM.
