"This is a great deal because two different diesel engines are covered in the same book by Bob McDonald. Bob, a 20 year diesel specialist, also does gas engines and anything that comes through his doors. Covering Ford/Navistar 7.3L and 6.0L diesel engines, this is the book we have been waiting for to clear up the problems about these two engines. If this book saves you just once from making a mistake while working on eitherof these engines, what is it worth to you? If you do not rebuild these diesels, buy it for a person who does or someone who is just learning. They will be in your debt. Great job, Bob" -reviewed by Mike Caruso, engine professional, October 2012 (Mike Caruso engine professional

"This book is full of tips from a seasoned mechanic. While it will never substitute for a factory service manual, this book is a great resource. The large full-color photos would even make this a great tool for service writers, helping them to explain a rebuild to customers who don't want to take on the task themselves. Ford fanatics will, of course, have to have one. It's worth adding to your truck manual selection, for the tech tips alone." -Trent Riddle, Diesel World, May 2013 (Trent Riddle Diesel World magazine
From the Back Cover
Diesel-powered trucks have never been more popular, and Ford’s Power Stroke family of Diesel engines have been a mainstay of the marketplace since introduced in 1994. While these engines are well known for their durability and longevity, they still require a rebuild at some point. How to best diagnose, repair, and rebuild these engines has been somewhat of a mystery for those without access to the factory manuals—until now. This book covers the vast majority of Power Stroke Diesel engines on the road, and includes the story of their design. Each major system used within the Power Stroke engines is described and discussed in detail, with full-color photos of every critical component. A complete step-by-step engine rebuild of both the 7.3L and 6.0L engines is also included. Also included are a wide range of engine building tips, charts, graphs, and information-packed sidebars to share even more information. Detailed graphics show the engine’s various system designs.
