SECTION 1 - Safety Precautions
1.
General
It is the responsibility of the installer/operator to ensure that the finished installation
complies with the relevant health & safety requirements and the recreational craft
directive before commissioning.
Ensure that the engine battery isolator switch is in the off position and the key removed
from the control panel before carrying out any maintenance or repairs.
2.
Lifting
The lifting points supplied with the engine are for lifting the engine/gearbox only. A
suitable spreader bar must be employed to prevent over-stressing either bracket during
any lift.
3.
Rotating Shafts and Belts
The engine and its accessories are not intended to be put into operation until it is
integrated into the boat as a whole. No person should be in the engine compartment
whilst the engine is running.
4.
Exhaust System
Exhaust gases may have temperatures as high as 650 oc and contain elements which
are harmful if ingested. It is therefore essential that exhaust systems are gas tight and
lagged to prevent accidental burning.
5.
Launching and Lifting Boats
Care must be taken when launching or craning new boats into or out of the waterway,
so that water does not enter the engine via the exhaust system or air vents. It is
recommended that these are blocked temporarily whilst undertaking this procedure.
6.
Batteries
WARNING:
EXPLOSIVE GASES / SULPHURIC ACID

Batteries can produce explosive gases, keep sparks and flames away from the
battery. NO SMOKING.

Batteries contain sulphuric acid; if splashed on skin or eyes, flush well with water
and seek medical advice.

Keep the battery tops and battery compartment ventilated at all times.
RDG603A11 Issue 1 Shire 14 70, 85 & 130 WB Owners Manual
Page 8 of 48

If disconnecting the battery; remove the earth lead FIRST; and re-connect it last.

If charging the battery; ensure that the charger is switched off before connecting and
disconnecting.

Do not tip the battery on its side.

Please see label on battery or manufacturer’s instructions for specific information.
RDG603A11 Issue 1 Shire 14 70, 85 & 130 WB Owners Manual

SECTION 2 - Engine Identification
Please quote the engine identification number during any enquiry or when ordering
spare parts.
This is found engraved into the brass plate, on top of the engine rocker cover and
stamped to the crankcase above the starter motor.
An example of the engine identification plate is as follows:
Figure 2-1: Engine Identification Badge
Note: There are a number of optional extras that may be fitted to an engine for particular
customer’s engine that are not listed here.
A list of common item service part numbers can be found in Shire service parts, in
Section 6.
RDG603A11 Issue 1 Shire 14 70, 85 & 130 WB Owners Manual
Page 10 of 48
SECTION 3 - Installation
1.
Ventilation
 All internal combustion engines radiate heat and require cool, clean air for complete
combustion purposes.
 Please ensure that adequate engine room ventilation is provided, by fitting at least
two vents of an aperture of not less than 15,000 mm2 each (24 in2).
An allowance must be made for any grills or louvres placed in the airflows and
generally, an increase of 25% in area is sufficient to overcome any restriction
problems.
2.

Engine Beds
These should be a minimum of 10mm thick and extended rearward and be welded
to the hull and forward to the bulkhead. There must be webs or gussets welded in
place to prevent flexing. They may be steel or stainless steel glassed into a GRP
hull.
3.

Pressurised Water Header Tank
The pressurised header tank should be mounted higher than the level of the engine
and no more than 1 metre from the engine, to prevent cooling system air locks.
Figure 3-1: Shire 70 WB Header Tank Connections
RDG603A11 Issue 1 Shire 14 70, 85 & 130 WB Owners Manual
Page 11 of 48
 Shire 70/85 WB - The smaller internal diameter hose tail (left side of tank) should be
connected to the top of the engine. This is the air-bleed. The larger internal diameter
hose-tail (right side of tank) should be connected to the lower pipe on the engine
(circled left). This is the water-fill.

Page 12 of 48
Figure 3-3: Shire 85/130 WB Header Tank Connections (Belt Driven Pump)
4.

Shaft Connection and Propeller selection
Some type of flexible coupling must be used to connect the gearbox output flange to
the propeller shaft flange. Various coupling flanges are widely available to assist with
this.

Please note, underperforming engines will not be covered under warranty if the
cause of the poor performance is found to be the use of an inappropriate propeller.
5.
Engine Anti-Vibration Mounts
 Ensure that the engine feet do not end up at the top of the thread on the engine
mounts, this puts undue pressure on them and can result in excessive engine
movement and premature mount failure. Mount the engine using the steel packing
plates supplied under the engine mounts RDG3906, see general arrangement
drawings.
 Ensure that the engine has been installed for at least 24 hours before shaft
alignment is checked, this allows the mounts time to settle under the engine weight.
 Ensure that the anti-vibration mount centre screw is sufficiently raised so as not to
touch the engine bed. If this occurs excessive engine vibration will be experienced
through the hull.
RDG603A11 Issue 1 Shire 14 70, 85 & 130 WB Owners Manual
Page 13 of 48
 For best results, fit the front anti vibration mounts into the front holes in the engine
rails. If engine room space is a problem the mounts can be fitted slightly further back
in alternative holes, and the front of the rail cut off – leaving 50mm of material to
retain strength (measuring from the centre of the mount hole to the front end of the
rail). Note: this procedure is only possible on non VDO travel power engines, and
may result in a very slight increase in vibration.
 The anti vibration mounts have a small number stamped in to them, a Shire 70 WB
has “45” and Shire 85/130 WB has “55”.
6.
Engine Mount Installation
Figure 3-4: Correct Anti-Vibration Mount Installation

Care should taken to install mounts parallel to the engine rails with the washer and
locknut firmly tightened on the cover of the mount. The maximum distance from the
top of the locknut to the base of the adjusting nut must not exceed 5mm; any greater
adjustment should be made using shims.

engine compartment space is
restricted.
Normal mounting position.
Figure 3-6: Anti-Vibration Mount Installation Points
7.
Engine Alignment
 The gearbox output shaft flange and propeller shaft input flange must be almost
perfectly aligned. A maximum of 0.05mm (0.002") misalignment in any plane is
acceptable. Ensure alignment is rechecked after the first 4 hours of running, at the
end of the first month and annually thereafter.
 If the engine is out of alignment it will result in excessive vibration and possible
damage to the stern tube and propeller shaft.
 Boats that are fitted with fully flexible drive couplings should still have the engine and
shaft alignment as close as possible. A dummy shaft may be required for this
purpose.
(Note: some types of flexible shaft couplings require the input and output to be
misaligned, check with the coupling manufacturer’s installation instructions).
RDG603A11 Issue 1 Shire 14 70, 85 & 130 WB Owners Manual

8.
Electrics
WARNING:
The blue link wire must be removed when the domestic battery positive terminal lead has
been connected to the terminal post.
Do not run the engine without this wire in place or without the domestic battery positive lead
connected otherwise alternator damage will occur.
If the engine is going to run for more than 1 hour with the blue link wire in place, remove
domestic alternator drive belt to prevent alternator damage.
Single Alternators
 On engines fitted with single alternators, connect the main positive battery cable to
the starter motor solenoid terminal.
 Do not attach any part, hose or cable to the engine wiring harness. There is a
warning label attached to the harness to remind you of this.
 Connect the wiring extension harness multi plug to the panel plug, and the other end
to the engine.
 Connect the start battery positive cable to the engine starter motor solenoid terminal.
 Starter motor battery cable size to be a minimum of 50mm2.
Twin Alternators
 Shire 70 WB - Connect the domestic battery positive cable to the 240A alternator
“Pos out” terminal (see wiring diagram). This ensures that the 50A alternator
charges the start battery and the 240A alternator charges the domestic battery. Twin
alternators remove the requirement for a split charging system or relay.
 Shire 85/130WB - Connect the domestic battery positive cable to the 120A alternator
B+ terminal (see wiring diagram). This ensures that the 140A charges the start
battery.
 Use 50mm2 cable for 240A alternator and 40mm2 cable for 140A
 Both negative battery terminals can be connected to a common earth point.

Belt Replacement
CAUTION:
REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY BEFORE WORKING IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
 Ensure that you have the correct new belt prior to starting this procedure. Loosen
the top adjuster bolts, and the lower mounting pivot nut and bolt.
 Push the alternator towards the engine to loosen the belt.
 Remove the seawater pump (may not be required, depending on seawater pump
option fitted).
 Remove the belt.
 Hold the belt in position over the top alternator pulley; rotate the engine, if
required, by hand, to guide the new belt into the pulley “V”s check it is correctly
seated in the pulley.
 Replace seawater pump (if required).
 Re-tension the belt as above.
Note: Some engines maybe fitted with a side mounted belt driven seawater pump.
Similar belt tightening procedure will apply for this.
9.
Electrical Options
 If the engine is fitted with the optional VDO travel power system, refer to the manual
supplied with it for correct wiring, control box installation and operation.
 The Shire range can be supplied with an optional additional 12v or 24v alternator. A
24 V Alternator will be supplied fitted but not wired. It is the responsibility of the boat
builder to ensure that this is correctly wired to the boats electrical system.
RDG603A11 Issue 1 Shire 14 70, 85 & 130 WB Owners Manual
Page 18 of 48
10.
Engine Oil
 All Shire engines are supplied fully run in.
 Check oil levels in engine and gearbox before starting. (The gearbox uses the same
grade of oil as the engine).
 Shire 70 WB -- use Shire engine oil SAE 15w / 40 API class CD.
 Shire 85/130 WB -- use John Deere engine oil, part number VC83070-020.
WARNING:
ENGINE OIL WITH A HIGHER API CLASS THAN SPECIFIED IS UNSUITABLE FOR
CANAL BOAT ENGINE OPERATION AND WILL CAUSE ENGINE DAMAGE IF USED.
11.
Fuel
 Ensure the main fuel tank is clear of dirt & water.
 A separate water trap is strongly advised. (The engine is supplied with a small water
trap as standard).
 Connect fuel feed and return hoses from engine to main fuel tank via supply and
return lines. Ensure that they are connected the correct way around.
 Shire 70 WB – connect the inlet to the electric fuel pump inlet hose.
 Shire 85/130 WB – connect to the inlet to the primary fuel filter inlet hose.
 The fuel supply and return hoses are fitted with 10mm (3/8”) hose tails.
 The engine hoses should have sufficient slack to absorb engine movement without
placing strain on the hoses, and be securely clipped to prevent accidental damage
and chafing.
 Initially fill the fuel system loosening the bleed bolt on the top of the primary fuel
filter/water trap. For Shire 70 WB, turn on the ignition to operate the electric fuel
pump. For Shire 85/130 WB, pump the primer on the primary filter. Close when fuel
begins to flow clearly (no bubbles). It is rarely necessary to bleed the injection pump
or injectors upon installation as the engine will already have fuel in it from the engine
run-in and test procedure.
RDG603A11 Issue 1 Shire 14 70, 85 & 130 WB Owners Manual
Page 19 of 48
12.
Coolant
 Yanmar (Shire 70 WB) recommend a prepared coolant mix of 50% clean tap water
and 50% antifreeze, John Deere (Shire 85 WB) recommend that Coolguard be used,
part number EPH76215-020.
 To fill the cooling system for the first time, add coolant to the engine through the
white plastic expansion bottle.
 Open the calorifier taps (where fitted) to fill the calorifier system and displace air.
 After running the engine for the first time, monitor the water level frequently as
trapped air bubbles may be expelled. Top up the system as necessary. Fill the skin
tank via the inlet hose connection or filler plug if fitted.
13.
Calorifier (optional)
 The temperature of coolant flowing to the calorifier from the engine can be between
85°C-90°C. A blender valve must be incorporated in the calorifier/hot water system
outlet to lower the hot water temperature for domestic use.

Control Cables
 Connect throttle and gear shift cables.
 With the engine off, ensure that the engine speed control cable achieves full travel
from idle to full speed.
 Check the gearshift selects positively and that the drive direction corresponds with
the gearshift lever. Ensure that the gearbox control lever and the gearshift lever are
both in neutral before connection.
 Set gearshift control to neutral position, and the speed control to idle.
15.
Domestic Battery Bank (with optional Twin Alternator Engines)
Domestic battery banks that are too large create excessive loads on the domestic
alternator. Alternators running at maximum output for prolonged periods of time will
eventually fail; alternators that fail due to the battery bank being over the maximum
recommended size will not be covered by warranty.
Higher output alternators or travelpower kits are available; if larger battery banks are
required discuss your individual power requirements with the boat builder.
RDG603A11 Issue 1 Shire 14 70, 85 & 130 WB Owners Manual
Page 21 of 48
 The maximum domestic battery bank is calculated using the following:
Live aboard; three times domestic charge alternator.
Hire fleet use; three and a half times domestic charge alternator.
Example:
Hire fleet application fitted with 140A domestic charge alternator
3.5 X 140 = 490 Ampere/hour
16.
Control Panel
All Shire engines are supplied with high quality engine control panel that all show RPM
and hours run and include warning lights and a warning buzzer, the deluxe panels also
have gauges for water temp, oil pressure and 240A (Shire70) and 120A (Shire 85/130)
battery charging. The panels are designed to be splash proof and are correctly installed
with the gauges vertical. Do not install so that they remain out in the open, or cover up
when not in use.
The control panel engine tachometer is supplied already calibrated to measure correct
engine speed, if a new dash panel, tachometer or alternative alternator is fitted the
tacho will require re-calibrating.

Seawater Strainer
A bulkhead mounted seawater strainer or similar is not supplied with the engine, we
recommend that one is fitted between the seawater inlet (seacock) and the sea water
pump inlet. The size of the Inlet and connections are:

Shire 70WB – 32mm

Shire 85WB – 32mm (crank driven pump)

Shire 85WB – 45mm (belt driven pump)

Shire 130WB – 45mm
16.
Exhaust System
The exhaust outlet size on the engine is 1 1/2" BSP female. There must be a flexible
exhaust hose of suitable exhaust grade between the engine and the silencer or hull
outlet. The outlet must be above the waterline at all times.

17.
Hydraulic Drive Transmissions
If an engine is to have a Hydraulic Drive Transmission attached to it, a number of
points must be observed.
Bobtail engines (i.e. Engines supplied without a marine gearbox), normally do not have
a gearbox oil cooler fitted, however if a cooler is supplied, this will only be suitable to
cool a conventional marine gearbox.
Hydraulic drive transmissions generate far more heat than a conventional marine
gearbox, therefore the size of oil cooler installed must be calculated by the hydraulic
drive transmission supplier; to ensure it has sufficient cooling capacity, and is sized
appropriately taking into account:

Maximum engine power

High ambient summer air temperature

Summer River/Canal/Sea temperature

No additional restriction to engine coolant flow is present
Skin tanks will also need to be increased by approx. 10% to accommodate the
additional heat dissipation required.
18.
Hydraulic Pump Drive (Shire 70)
For SAE type pump (9T).
If a hydraulic pump is required to drive items such as bow thrusters or hydraulic winches
then the following parts are required to enable drive to be taken from the engine power
take off.

SECTION 4 - Operation
1.
Starting The Engine For The First Time
 Remove the ignition key.
 Ensure oil and coolant levels are checked.
 Ensure both engine and domestic batteries are connected or the blue link wire is in
place.
 Check all connections and mountings are tight.
 Ensure the red protection cap is removed from the air filter inlet.
2.
Starting Procedure
Note: Shire engines do not have a cold start function as standard. Therefore the glow
plug light will not illuminate.
 Ensure the gearshift control is set to neutral, and that persons are clear of any
moving parts.
 Insert key.
 Ensure the domestic battery isolator is turned to the on position before starting the
engine, failure to do so may damage the domestic alternator.
Turn key to first position, on.
Observe warning lights and gauges on panel.
Listen for warning buzzer.
Turn key to second position, start, and hold to crank.
Crank the engine for no more than 15 seconds.
Immediately on engine start, release key.
Key will return to first position, on.

show an oil pressure of 3-4 bar [44-58 psi].
Should any warning light fail to go out or there is no reading on the oil pressure
gauge, the buzzer will continue sounding. In this case stop the engine immediately
and check the relevant system. (Note if the charge light does not go out increase the
engine speed briefly).
Stop engine immediately if any abnormal noises are detected.
Once started, check that sea water is coming out of the water cooled exhaust, outlet
in the hull of the boat.
Visually check the engine for oil, fuel and coolant leaks, (after initial start up and at
regular intervals, N.B. engine must be stopped to carry out this check).
Stopping Procedure
 Move speed control lever to idle position.
 Turn key to off position.

4.
Refuelling
 The fuel type for all Shire canal boat engines is diesel. DO NOT USE BIODIESEL
 Please note that when the vessel is to be left for any period of time the fuel tank
should be left full to eliminate the buildup of condensation and water in the tank.
5.
Diesel Fuel Additive
The use of diesel fuel additive is strongly recommended on Shanks & Shire engines.
The quality of the fuel available when cruising is often unknown; also the fuel may
have been in storage for long periods of time. The use of additives will ensure that
your engine fuel injection system is in top condition, which should result in many
years of smooth reliable operation without the cost and inconvenience of expensive
breakdowns due to poor quality fuel. It has also been found that improvements in
fuel consumption and startability are an added benefit of using this product.
Diesel fuel additive is available from your Shanks or Shire dealer in a handy 375 ml
container, part number RDG80210219.
6.

Exhaust Back Pressure
Use 100 mm ID suitable machine flexible exhaust hose on both Shire 70, 85 & 130
WB. Do not step down to a smaller size.

The engine exhaust outlet must be at least 200mm (8”) above the outside seawater
level of the hull. If not an exhaust high rise kit and/or lock box/Swan neck must be
used to prevent sea water flowing back up the exhaust and causing engine damage.

SECTION 5 - Service Procedure
1.
Engine Oil and Filter Change
CAUTION:
WEAR DISPOSABLE GLOVES AND BEWARE OF HOT OIL AND ENGINE BLOCK.
REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY BEFORE WORKING IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
 Change the engine oil while the engine is still hot.
 Remove the blanking plug in the sump pump spout. [8mm Allen key]. The larger of
the two oil extraction pumps is for draining engine oil.
 Place a plastic tube over the spout and into a container. Operate the pump handle to
empty the sump. (Remember to refit the blanking plug afterwards).
 Place a drip tray under the engine oil filter to catch the small amount of oil that will
escape. Using a filter removal tool, slacken the filter from the engine block in an
anti-clockwise direction, remove the tool and spin off the filter.
 Lightly oil the new filter O-ring seal and install the filter onto the engine. Spin on in a
clockwise direction and finally tighten by hand only as firmly as you can.
 Refill the sump using the oil filler cap in the rocker cover on top of the engine.
 Add correct grade of oil, see SECTION 7 - Service Schedule.
 Oil level should be to the top mark on the dipstick.
 Run the engine for 5 minutes to fully circulate the oil and check for leaks. Stop the
engine. Wait 5 minutes before checking the oil level with the dipstick and top up if
required.
 Do not overfill with oil above the maximum level marker as this may cause damage
to the internal components of the engine.

THE IGNITION KEY BEFORE WORKING IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
 Release the two spring clips, pull off the end cover to reveal the filter element. The
element simply pulls out. Note: the Shire 90 has an inner safety element fitted.
 The air filter element is constructed from pleated paper; inspect it closely for dust or
dirt. The air filter cannot be cleaned and must be replaced when dirty. The engine
requires clean unrestricted air to run efficiently, failure to maintain the air filter could
result in smoke, increased fuel consumption and ultimately engine damage.
 To fit the new element, slide the open end of the filter element into the main body;
gently push the element home until fully seated. Refit the end cover.
3.
Gearbox Oil Change
CAUTION:
WEAR DISPOSABLE GLOVES AND BEWARE OF HOT OIL AND GEARBOX CASING.

8.
Fuel System Bleeding
 Ensure that the fuel tank is more than ¾” full prior to attempting this.
 Refer to Yanmar Operator’s Manual, page 13 (Shire 70 WB).
 Refer to John Deere Operator’s Manual, page 50-6 (Shire 85 WB).
9.
Cooling System
WARNING:
DO NOT CHECK THE COOLANT LEVEL WHEN THE ENGINE IS HOT. REMOVE THE
IGNITION KEY BEFORE WORKING IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
 To check the coolant level, ensure that the engine has been shut down for at least
half an hour.
 The coolant level can be checked visually and should be between the two level
marks moulded on to the white, plastic expansion tank.
 If required, top up the level with coolant (50% clean tap water and 50% ethylene
glycol based anti-freeze) through the expansion tank filler cap.
 Do not use water only to top up as this weakens the coolant mix, reducing the level
of frost protection and anti-corrosion protection of the coolant.
10.
Belt Adjustment
CAUTION:
REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY BEFORE WORKING IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
 Depress the longest run of the drive belt to be checked. If the travel exceeds 15 20mm using hard finger pressure, the belt needs re-tensioning.
 Loosen the upper adjuster bolts on the alternator, and the lower mounting pivot nut
and bolt, either pull out using hand pressure or use the tensioning screw, depending
on which alternator is fitted.
 Pull the alternator away from the engine to tighten the belt.
 Hold the alternator in position and re-tighten all the bolts.
Note:
1 – If the belts are over tightened alternator bearing failure will occur.
2 – Shire 85 WB 120A alternator belt is self-adjusting.
RDG603A11 Issue 1 Shire 14 70, 85 & 130 WB Owners Manual
Page 32 of 48
11.
Belt Maintenance
 Do not allow oil to contact the belt, oil attacks the construction of the belt, reduces
the drive efficiency and will ultimately cause it to fail prematurely.
 Replace the belt if it cracks, splits, or as the adjustment nears the limit of its travel.
 Note: Some boat builders may remove one or more of the alternators during the
installation of the engine. It is essential that when the alternators are refitted that the
alignment is perfect or premature belt wear will occur.
12.
Belt Replacement
CAUTION:
REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY BEFORE WORKING IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
Shire 70 WB
 Ensure that you have the correct belts before starting this procedure. Some
customers may have engines fitted with non standard optional alternators which may
not have the standard belts listed. Make a note of the belt sizes on delivery.
 Loosen the top adjuster bolts, and the lower mounting pivot nut and bolt.
 Push the alternator towards the engine to loosen the belt.
 Remove the belt.
 Hold the belt in position over the top alternator pulley, rotate the engine, if required,
by hand, to guide the new belt into the “vee”.
 Re - tension the belt as above.
 Note: On some engines water pipes or brackets may need to be removed to replace
the belt
