I don't know what the ISBN number is? To be truthful, I don't know what ISBN means?

Hi Gary,

The ISBN number is on the same page as the copyright, print date and publisher information.

"What is an ISBN?
The International Standard Book Number (ISBN) is a 10-digit number that uniquely identifies books and book-like products published internationally."

"What is the purpose of an ISBN?
The purpose of the ISBN is to establish and identify one title or edition of a title from one specific publisher and is unique to that edition, allowing for more efficient marketing of products by booksellers, libraries, universities, wholesalers and distributors."

Found the accurate descriptions for the ISBN numbers, to pass along.

Thanks, Jim

Hi Gary,

Still would like to have the information, to look for a copy of your book.

Thanks, Jim

Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 65-18208

That's all of the information I could find . . . I couldn't find a 10 digit number.

I looked on Volume 2, and it even has less information!

Sorry I couldn't give you more information :shrug:

John is absolutely correct in the previous post. Add, .001 to begin with and then add ,001 for every inch of diameter.
So is that .004 for a 4" cylinder to piston clearance

Steve & Nick:

Here's 3 scans: Cylinder, piston valve, and eccentric tolerances that I scanned off.












I have two more on bearing clearances, but I'll have to post them on another posting!

Gary,

For some reason I am not able to see these photos for the clearances. Where in the MODERN MARINE ENGINEER'S MANUAL do you find these. I have the 3rd edition and have scoured through it looking for these and cannot seem to find them.
