    So may verieties on engines. If there is a book then it will cover the basics of probably the most common ones. You do get workshop manuals for some engines, the basics remains the same.

    Nothing like experience though. If you know how an engine works you could visit some yards and even boat owners, ask them to show you what they have, what is involved and how is what done.

    If you have the time you could always offer to work for free for an engine repair shop, not for what you may earn ;) but for what you can learn. Nothing like a bit of grease and oil to improve the grey matter.
