The first edition of this book developed from my own experiences when we installed Stormalongs present engine in 1990. Stormalong is a fairly heavy-displacement gaff cutter, built in 1936 of fine Scandinavian redwood and hard English oak. Her 6-ton hull is easily driven but really needed a new engine between about 24 hp and 30 hp. When we embarked on this project I soon discovered a whole fascinating area of engineering knowledge and tricks of the trade of which I'd hitherto been largely unaware. This short book is really a distillation of what I learnt in the process and my intention has been to pass on this information for the benefit of others who decide either to install a new engine themselves or oversee a new installation carried out by an engineer.
Actually choosing a new engine turned out to be a more complex task than I had imagined, partly because we were fitting a relatively compact 'new generation' diesel into a space once occupied by a physically much larger and completely different shaped petrol engine of venerable vintage. At the time, within the feasible power range for Stormalongs hull, I picked out 11 engines as possible contenders, all of which had different pros and cons in terms of size, weight, performance, ease of installation and maintenance, and of course cost. From this original list I finally decided on the Perkins Perama M30, a three-cylinder 30 hp diesel in what was then Perkins' new compact range of marine engines. The Perama turned out to be an excellent choice and has served us well, and was also by far the best value engine in our original comparison list.
However, the Perama no longer exists as a Perkins model. Not long after our engine was installed, Perkins and Volvo Penta entered into an arrangement whereby Perkins ceased to market engines under 80 hp themselves and instead supplied base engines for Volvo Penta. Since then, developments in engine technology have continued steadily and now, in 2006, there is a different and even better line up of marine diesels in the 24-30 hp range. Yet though we now have improved engines and components to choose from, the important principles of sound installation haven't changed. A sophisticated new marine diesel will give long and reliable service only if the whole installation is well engineered and thought out, and it is to facilitate this process that I have produced this new edition of How to Install a New Diesel Engine.
