Jim Zima, owner of Great Lakes Diesel in Huron, Ohio, returns to the GLCC School line-up with his popular webinar Marine Diesel Maintenance 101. This is a must webinar for those who like to stick their nose in the engine room, and want to have the confidence of knowing how to do things right. From the GLCC School to the Annapolis Cruisers University Jim Zima shows us that he is not only a master mechanic but a great teacher.

Jim Zima, owner of Great Lakes Diesel in Huron, Ohio, believes that by instructing boat owners in basic maintenance, they learn to do daily engine checks and become confident in their ability to perform their own preventative maintenance services. Knowledge in these areas will keep your boat in good running order and will likely avoid costly repairs. 

Join us as Jim discusses the basic of diesel engine maintenance: fuel systems, fuel filters and bleeding techniques, engine and transmission oils, air filter maintenance, electrical and cooling system maintenance, impeller replacement and more. Listen as Jim provides pointers on service intervals and tips to help simplify your own maintenance efforts.  On top of all that Jim will help you to understand some of the more complex engine systems, like shaft alignment and valve adjustment, and when it is time to bring in a trained technician to assist. 

Be on the look out for more Diesel Maintenace Webinars: In addition to his basic marine diesel maintenance webinar Jim will also be presenting two more diesel maintenance webinars with an in depth look at  Marine Diesel Fuel Systems (March 21, 2017) and Marine Diesel Cooling Systems (April 11, 2017).
