Believe it or not, this is the book I read during my week-long vacation at the beach last summer!  This book was very helpful in explaining everything I needed to know about how carburetors and fuel injection systems work.

I really like to read about and understand mechanical systems. Fairly well written, although a bit stiff; some of the descriptions are hard to follow (how the fuel tracks through the various parts of the carburetor) and the photos and drawings didn’t help much to understand what happens inside these mysterious devices.

Also, it’s really too bad the book wasn’t printed on some higher-quality paper. The telephone-book-type paper it was printed on resulted in poor quality photos, graphs and drawings.

I also could have done without the detailed description of various brands of carburetors. But, all things considered, a nice job, worth the bucks and I don’t regret my purchase.
