Diesel Engine Theory Class

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 next class focuses on overhauling cylinder one during which time 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.

$295 Northwest Seaport & CWB members ; $335 non-members (Cost includes daily lunch.)
