Join the engineers and get your hands dirty while fixing the Arthur Foss’ 700 horsepower diesel engine. This 78-year-old engine uses the same principles as modern diesels, but the parts are MUCH bigger and easier to work on. The 2013 session focuses on overhauling cylinder one; participants will inspect previous repair work, pull the cylinder head and piston (18” in diameter!) and perform repairs under the supervision of experienced diesel mechanics. Instructor: Adrian Lipp of Old Tacoma Marine.
8:30 pm – 5 pm scheduled over five consecutive Saturdays; No prior engine experience necessary.
