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 to be put into operation until they are integrated
into the boat as a whole. No person should be in the engine compartment and the engine
cover or deck hatches should be closed whilst the engine is running.
4. Exhaust System
Exhaust gases may have temperatures as high as 600 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.
RDG603A9 - Issue 1 - Shire 14 Workboat Owners Manual 30, 40, 50

6. Batteries
WARNING:
EXPLOSIVE GASES / SULPHURIC ACID.
 Batteries can produce explosive gas; 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.
 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.
RDG603A9 - Issue 1 - Shire 14 Workboat Owners Manual 30, 40, 50

SECTION 2 - Engine Identification
Please quote the engine identification number during any enquiry or when ordering spare
parts. Use the space below to record these details.
This can be found engraved into the brass plate on top of the engine rocker cover and
stamped to the crankcase next to the starter motor.
An example of the engine identification plate is shown below:
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.
(P 26).
RDG603A9 - Issue 1 - Shire 14 Workboat Owners Manual 30, 40, 50
Page 9 of 40
SECTION 3 - Installation
1. Ventilation
 All internal combustion engines radiate heat and require cool, clean air to aid
complete combustion.
 Please ensure that adequate engine room ventilation is provided, by fitting at least
two vents of an aperture of not less than 10,000 mm 2 each, (16 in2).
An allowance must be made for any grills or louvers or bends 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, extended rearward and be welded to the
hull and forward to the bulkhead. Webs or gussets must be welded in place midway 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.
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. If this is a problem put steel packing plates
under the mounts. Packing plates 25mm thick are available: order RDG3906 Engine
mount spacer. Alternatively they can be manufactured locally.
 Ensure that the engine has been installed for at least 24 hours before shaft alignment
is checked, to allow the mounts time to settle under the engine weight.
RDG603A9 - Issue 1 - Shire 14 Workboat Owners Manual 30, 40, 50
Page 10 of 40
 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.
Care should be taken to install mounts parallel to the engine rails and 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 up using shims below the mount.

Page 11 of 40
RDG603A9 - Issue 1 - Shire 14 Workboat Owners Manual 30, 40, 50
Page 12 of 40
6. 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, after the
first month, and thereafter annually.
 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).
7. Electrics
 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 single wire that is adjacent to the 11 pin plug
 Connect the start battery positive cable to the electrical terminal post adjacent to the
sump pump.
 The starter motor battery cable must have a cross sectional area of at least 50mm2.
8. Engine Oil
 All Shire engines are supplied fully run in.
 Check oil levels in engine and gearbox before starting.
 Use a good quality engine oil SAE 15W/ 40 API class CD.
9. Fuel
 Ensure the main fuel tank is clear of dirt & water.
 A separate water trap is strongly advised.
 Connect fuel feed and return hoses from engine to main supply and return lines to
main fuel tank, ensuring they are connected the correct way around. The hose to the
fuel lift pump is the inlet.
 The engine hoses are supplied with 5/16" (8mm) OD metal hose tails, and should be
securely fitted to the main supply and return pipes with compression fittings.
 The engine hoses should have sufficient slack to absorb engine movement without
RDG603A9 - Issue 1 - Shire 14 Workboat Owners Manual 30, 40, 50
Page 13 of 40
placing strain on the hoses, and be securely clipped to prevent accidental damage
and chafing.
 Initially fill the fuel system by turning the ignition on to operate the electric fuel pump.
Loosen the bleed screw on the top of the primary fuel filter/water trap and 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.
10.
Coolant
 Prepare coolant mix of 50% clean tap water and 50% antifreeze.
 Fill the engine cooling system for the first time through the header tank filler cap on
models 30 & 40, and through the exhaust manifold filler cap and then via the header
tank on model 50. Start and run the engine for several minutes to dispel any
remaining air bubbles, with the pressure cap removed.
 N.B. 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.
 Ensure the top header tank connection goes to the small hole connection on the tank.

Page 14 of 40
11. Control Cables
 Connect engine speed control cable. With the engine off, ensure that the engine
speed control lever achieves full travel from idle to full speed. Adjust if necessary.
 Check the gearbox shift lever selects positively and that the drive direction
corresponds with the gearshift control lever. Ensure that the gearbox control lever
and the gearshift lever are both in neutral before connection. Adjust if necessary.
 Ensure that when forward is engaged on the throttle that forward is engaged on the
gearbox.
12.
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.
13. 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 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.
Dash Panel Calibration Procedure:

Connect dash panel plug to engine wiring loom plug

Turn ignition on (do not start engine)

Press and hold black button on rear of tacho until “H –“ appears on the digital display
on the bottom of the tacho (on the front).

When pressing and holding the black button on rear of tacho, the value displayed will
increase/decrease until button is released. Then when pressed again it will
increase/decrease in the other direction, keep doing this until the digitally displayed
value on bottom of tacho reaches the correct value, according to the type of alternator
(see table). Must be set to the alternator with blue and black wire connected to it.

Confirm settings to tacho meter reader.

An optical tachometer is required to check the reading.

16.
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
17. Hydraulic Pump Drive Option (Shire 38 / 40 / 45 / 50)
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.
Part No. 129484-26200 incorporates:
 Packing (on gear case side): 171353-26081
 Cover: 121023 - 26070
 Cover packing: 121023-26061

SECTION 4 - Operation
1. Starting the Engine for the First Time
 Remove ignition key.
 Ensure all oil and coolant levels are checked.
 Ensure engine battery is connected. Battery master switch must be turned on.
 Check all connections and mountings are tight.
 Ensure that the raw water seacock is turned on.
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 lever is set to neutral, and that persons are clear of any
moving parts.
 Insert the ignition key and turn to the first position, on.
 Observe warning lights (and gauges on deluxe panel). NB the engine overheat light
will only illuminate when the water temperature exceeds the safe level
 Listen for warning buzzer.
 Turn key to second position, start, and hold to crank.
 Crank the engine for no more than 15 seconds.
 On engine start, immediately release key.
 Key will return to first position, on.
 The warning buzzer will stop and on the deluxe panel the oil pressure gauge will show
an oil pressure of 3– 4 bar [45-60 psi].
 Should any warning light not go out, or if 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, rev the
engine briefly).
 Once started check that sea water is coming out of the water cooled exhaust outlet in
the hull of the boat
 Stop engine immediately if any abnormal noises are detected.
 Visually check the engine for oil, fuel and coolant leaks, (after initial startup and at
regular intervals, N.B. engine must be stopped to carry out this check).
RDG603A9 - Issue 1 - Shire 14 Workboat Owners Manual 30, 40, 50
Page 19 of 40
3. Stopping Procedure
 Move speed control lever to idle position.
 Turn key to off position.
4. Refuelling
 All Shire marine engines run on diesel fuel. DO NOT USE BIODIESEL
 Please note that if the vessel is to be left for any period of time the fuel tank should be
full to eliminate the build up of condensation and formation of water in the fuel 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 Shire dealer in a handy 375ml container,
part number RDG80210219.
6. Exhaust Back Pressure

Use 50mm ID suitable marine flexible exhaust hose on the 30 model engine and
60mm on the 40 and 50 models. 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.
RDG603A9 - Issue 1 - Shire 14 Workboat Owners Manual 30, 40, 50

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. [6mm Allen key] Note (if there is
an optional gearbox oil drain pump) the engine sump is the pump mounted adjacent
to the starter motor.
 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 to catch the small amount of oil that will escape
from the oil filter. Using a strap type oil filter removal tool (supplied), 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 it 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.
 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.

 Release the 2 spring clips, pull off the end cover to reveal the filter element. The
element simply pulls out.
 The air filters elements are constructed of pleated paper and requires regular
inspection for dirt or dust. Air filter elements cannot be cleaned and must be replaced.
 The engine requires an unrestricted flow of clean air to run efficiently. Increased
levels of smoke and high fuel consumption and eventually engine damage will occur if
the air filter is not maintained.
 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 CASINGS.

more information).
 Place a tray beneath the gearbox that will hold at least 2.0 litres.
 Undo the gearbox drain plug, and remove, allow the oil to drain fully.
 Replace the drain plug, ensure that the sealing washer (if used) is still in place, and in
good condition, tighten. Fit a new washer if required.
 Refill the gearbox with oil to the upper mark on the dipstick. Screw dipstick in fully to
establish level.
 Do not overfill gearbox as this can damage the internal components.
 Note; Some gearboxes may have a gearbox drain pump fitted as an optional extra. In this
case use the drain pump to remove the oil.

CAUTION:
WEAR DISPOSABLE GLOVES.
REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY BEFORE WORKING IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
 Place a small drain bowl under the primary fuel filter/water trap.
 Loosen the drain screw located in the bottom of the fuel filter/water trap.
RDG603A9 - Issue 1 - Shire 14 Workboat Owners Manual 30, 40, 50
Page 24 of 40
 Drain off any water (if any)
 When water is drained off, close the drain screw.
 It is unlikely the complete fuel system will require bleeding.
 Run for 5 minutes.
 Check that the drain union is tight and that there are no leaks.
 Note; the boat builder may have fitted an additional water trap in the fuel system
before the engine. Ensure that this is drained regularly.
5. Primary and Secondary Fuel Filter Change
CAUTION:
WEAR DISPOSABLE GLOVES.
REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY BEFORE WORKING IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
 Ensure the fuel tank is at least ¾ full prior to undertaking this procedure.
 Turn off the main boat fuel supply tap, located on or near the fuel tank.
 Place a small drip tray under the filter body.
 Remove the fuel filters using the oil filter wrench supplied. Unscrew them until loose then
remove by hand.
 Primary fuel filter only – Retain the metal fuel filter drain screw from old filter and re-use
in the new filter.
 Smear a small amount of clean fuel on all of the O ring seals that are supplied with the
new filter element.
 Screw the new element back into the filter head.
 Turn the main boat fuel supply tap back on.
 Ensure system is correctly bled before attempting start up.
The same procedure is used for both Primary and secondary fuel filter changes

6. Bleeding the Fuel System.
CAUTION:
WEAR DISPOSABLE GLOVES.
REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY BEFORE WORKING IN ENGINE COMPARTMENT.
 Ensure the fuel tank is at least ¾ full prior to undertaking this procedure.
 See Fuel paragraph, Section 3, in Yanmar Engine Operation Manual.
7.
Cooling System
CAUTION:
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 between the two level marks
moulded on the front of 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.
8.
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 –20
mm 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, pull out using hand pressure.
 Pull the alternator away from the engine to tighten the belt.
 Hold the alternator in position and re-tighten all the bolts.
RDG603A9 - Issue 1 - Shire 14 Workboat Owners Manual 30, 40, 50
Page 26 of 40
 Note: if the belts are over tightened alternator bearing failure will occur.
9.
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 re-fitted that the
alignment is perfect or premature belt wear will occur.
10.
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 (some
engines may have been fitted with non-standard optional alternators which may not
have the belt sizes listed. Make a note of belt size 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 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.

 Reassemble and refit checking the end cap "O" rings are in good condition
Refill the engine with coolant as described earlier (page 14).
15.
Winterization of Seawater Cooling System.

To prevent frost damage to the seawater cooling circuit components because of water
freezing, ensure all seawater or raw water is drained from the system

Alternatively, run neat anti-freeze through the seawater pump inlet to protect the
system
Ensure that the anti-freeze is drained before starting the engine the next season to
ensure that it does not get into the marine environment. Dispose of correctly
