Best book on repairing marine diesel

I am getting ready to work on a Yanmar YSM8 which ran (with some troubles)for the last owner and has sat for some time. I would like to purchase a good book for working on marine diesel engines. I would enjoy learning what people have found to work for them. Below are some of the books that I have looked at on the web. It would be nice to narrow in on what would be best. I would like something that is detailed and offers more than the basics such winterizing an engine or changing oil.


Seloc, Yanmar Inboards - doesnt' seem to cover the YSM8 but maybe most of the material would apply?

Trouble Shooting Marine Diesels by Peter Compton - seems to be a good at just what the title sais. One reviewer on Amazon recommend this to find the problem and then have another book to fix the problem.

Marine Diesel Engines: Maintenance and Repair Manual by Jean-Luc Pallas
