After many years in the boating industry and writing countless articles for your favorite boating magazines, John Fleming has put his wealth of knowledge into his new book, The Complete Guide To Outboard Engines. This book starts with the difference in design and power between the two-cycle outboard and its new brother, the four-cycle outboard. As with John's, Complete Guide To Gasoline Marine Engines, these pages take the reader deep inside the engine by discussing the design, function and results of the entire engine system and drive unit. The book's design allows the reader to start with the basics and progress through each skill level until a thorough understanding of engines is achieved. This book also delves deeply into the technical aspects of outboard engines, but the information remains extremely easy to understand and follow throughout each step. You will not find another book that will explain outboard engines as completely or easily as this book. One fact remains; when you have read, The Complete Guide To Outboard Engines, you will be the most popular person on the dock every Saturday morning. Illustrated

Excerpt from Harper's Gasoline Engine Book: How the Engine Is Made, How to Use It at Home, in Boats and Vehicles, an Elsewhere, and How to Keep It in Order It has made possible the aeroplane and the submarine, the automobile, the motorcycle, and the motor-boat. In factories, farms, and homes countless motors are in daily use, steadily and rapidly performing a thousand tasks that formerly required the slow and laborious work Of many hands. Gas engines even drive the great dynamos that ﬂash unseen wireless messages across the broad Atlantic, while locomotives thunder across continents and steam ships plow the seas by means Of this same wonderful power. The modern gas motor is the simplest, strongest, and most compact power-producing device known to man, and yet not one person in a thousand has but a vague idea Of its principles or operation. The purpose of this book is to serve as a simple, practical, and complete guide for all those who own, use, or Operate gas and gasoline motors. In its preparation every effort has been made to do away with technical terms and names and to adapt the book to the requirements Of those who possess little or no knowledge Of engineering or mechanics.
