Diesel 1: Marine Diesel Maintenance 101

Body
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 in this webinar as Jim Zima discusses fuel systems, fuel filters and bleeding techniques, engine and transmission oil and filter maintenance, 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.
