Ford 2715E (Dorset)

The Ford 2715E (commonly referred to as a member of the Dorset group of engines) was produced by Ford of Britain from October 1970 until ¿September? 1981 when production switched to the very similar 2725E (Dover Standard). It is a 120 horsepower, 380 cubic inch, parent bore, 6 cylinder, naturally aspirated, diesel engine which was originally designed to power British Ford D-Series lorries. It was immediately preceded by a transition engine produced from November 1969 until October 1970 known as the 2704C that was almost identical to the 2715E except it had a slightly lower compression ratio of 15.5:1 verses 16:1 and was rated at slightly less horsepower of ¿108.5? hp verses 120 hp.


Ford “Dorset” (2700 & 2710 Range) Diesel Engines
(1965-1982)

The fuel injection pumps on 2700+ engines (1965+) were gear driven directly
without any exposed couplings or extension shafts (see picture below).

Lehman marinized FORD 2701E Dorset with directly driven fuel injection pump (no external drive shaft).
The directly driven fuel injection pump caused more rapid wear of the engine’s pump driving gears.
Also note the remote oil filter, which had been inverted to fit into the shipping crate is now righted.
The “Two Shaft” Raw Water Pump has yet to be replaced with “Single Shaft” Pump to avoid shaft failure.
See other “Fixes” that need to be accomplished to prevent engine damage listed later in this article.

In 1965, Ford introduced the Dorset Series 2700 Range diesel engines. The early Dorset models were produced from 2/1965 to 11/1969. This range included the 2701E, 2703E, 2704E, 2704ET (Turbocharged), 2706E (an inclined 2701E), 2708E (an inclined 2703E), and 2709E (an inclined 2704E). All featured “Dry” cylinder liners, a new block, cylinder head, sump, etc. and were distinct from the Dagenham series engines by having the fuel injection pump mounted directly to the timing gear housing and driven directly by the engine’s timing gears (as shown in the picture above) with no moving parts seen whilst the engine is running. But like the 4D & 6D, they still had the pressed steel timing gear covers and angle cut timing gears. The Lehman marinized versions of these engines were fitted with the troublesome two-shaft raw water pump which was developed by Lehman from a Jabsco rubber impeller type water pump and located just under the fuel injection pump. Both the directly driven fuel injection pump and the raw water pump contributed to rapid wear of the engine timing gears. When these gears failed, the engine would suffer significant internal damage. The earlier 4D and 6D engines did not suffer from as much gear wear because the soft shock absorbing fuel injection pump drive coupling had the beneficial effect of minimizing drive gear chatter, and thus engine timing gear wear was not the problem that it became on the Dorset Series engines. The 2720+ Dover models introduced in 1982 were fitted with the more robust, but noisier straight cut gears.

In April 1965 Ford launched the “D-Series” lorry (see picture above) to replace the Thames Trader. These vehicles were fitted with automotive versions of the 2700 series engines which were fitted into the lorries on a slant (inclined). The first of these engines were offered in 330 & 360 cubic inch configurations. A Turbo 360 was first offered in 1968.

In 1969, Ford introduced the Early-to-Late Transitional Dorset Series 2700 Range “C” suffix (Parent Bore) Engines which were produced for only one year from 11/1969 to 10/1970). This range included the 2701C, 2703C, and 2704C, which were the immediate forerunners of the 2711E, 2713E, and 2714E respectively which they were for all practical purposes identical to.

In late 1970, Ford introduced the Late Dorset Series 2710 Range engines which were produced from 11/1970 to 1982. This range included the 2711E, 2712E, 2713E, 2714E, and 2715E, all of which featured boreable “Parent Bore” cylinders. The 2704ET Turbocharged “Dry” Liner engine was carried over from before. Like the 2700 Range engines, the 2710 Range engines were fitted into the D series lorries on a slant (inclined). The 2710 Range engines became very popular in marine service. The 2712E was marinized into the popular Lehman 80, and the 2715E was marinized into the even more popular Lehman 120.

Ford 2715E based Lehman 120

In several of the current online forums, there seems to be some confusion about which engine family came first, the Dagenham engines, the Dorset engines or the Dover engines. Fortunately, the Ford, Lehman and Mermaid specsheets and Manuals properly identify the engine families. One significant cause for this confusion is the commonality between all these ford engine families. This has resulted in it becoming common practice to replace damaged engines with engines from older or newer families, or with engines made up of components from earlier or later engines. Sometimes, matters are made worse when these replacement engines or components come from different applications (agriculture, automotive or industrial), and different duty ratings and power ratings. One must be very careful when identifying engines and their proper components to avoid throwing the engines off balance especially in twin engine applications. Even mixing a 2715E with its slightly lower power rated brother, the 2714E can have significant consequences in terms of carbonization and reduced service life. In such cases, it is always wise to consult a knowledgeable expert such as Brian Smith at American Diesel to ensure that you achieve the best results.

NOTES: Produced 10/1970~?/1981? (See Ford Industrial Engine Production Dates by Serial Numbers by Jimcdbts). Data from Ford 2700 Series Service Manual (Dated 6/79) & Sabre Lehman OpManual. 6D380-W HP data from BoatDiesel, 6D380-C&P HP data from OpManual. Various data sources list slightly different B&S, Displacement, etc. Fitted with Simms Minimec P5130 Injection Pump, angle cut timing gears and pressed steel timing gear cover. This model powered Cargo lorries. This is the popular engine marinized by Lehman and known as the Lehman 120.

*This engine is equipped with a Simms Minimec mechanically governed mechanical jerk-type fuel injection pump. The 120 BHP output rating @ 2500 rpm is achieved when the engine is at full throttle and overloaded enough that the injection pump rack is fully advanced to maximum spray duration (ie when at WOT and under full overload while accelerating, climbing ocean swells, on a dyno or over-propped). This output rating is intended to provide the intermittent power needed during acceleration and when climbing ocean swells. If the propeller is properly pitched for the vessel, the engine may come close to this output during full throttle acceleration or when climbing ocean swells at WOT, but the engine was not intended to be operated under such overload for very long as this lugging of the engine is detrimental to the engine from overloading, hot-spots, over-fueling, incomplete combustion, and carbon buildup and wear. The vessel’s propeller pitch should be selected to allow the governor to draw back the injection rack to the ideal spray duration as the engine approaches 2500 rpm (which should produce roughly 114.5 BHP for this particular engine). The Mermaid Power Curve shown below is misleading as Ford says that the 120 HP is achieved only in ‘Overload’. IMPORTANT NOTE: The service life of an overloaded diesel engine will suffer considerably due to over-fueling, incomplete combustion, etc. Likewise the life of an under-worked diesel engine will also suffer, but in this case mainly from incomplete combustion that results from low combustion temperatures. The size and power output of any diesel engine and the propeller pitch must be matched to the vessel’s use, speed, hull type, and weight in order to maximize the engine’s service life. See Selecting the Right Diesel Engine for a Boat.

What our nonprofit Anchors Aweigh Academy and its
EverythingAboutBoats.org website have accomplished so far.

  • Published over 300 website main topic webpages, many with full articles on the topic. See our Website Contents in the Right Sidebar for the listing of the main topic pages.
  • Published over 9,000 marine vendor webpages, all with their contact information, most with a description of their products and services, many with product documentation, specifications and independent reviews. (Includes: Boat designers, boat building tools, material and equipment manufacturers and suppliers, boat builders and dealers, yacht brokers, marine surveyors, boat insurers, boat transporters, skippers and crews, boatyards and marinas, yacht clubs, boat rentals and yacht charters, boating, seamanship and maritime schools, marine law attorneys and expert witnesses, boat refitters and repairers, book authors and publishers, and video producers)
  • Acquired over 120,000 pages of product documentation including Catalogs, Brochures, SpecSheets, Pictures, Serial Number Guides, Installation Manuals, OpManuals, Parts Schematics, Parts Bulletins, Shop Manuals, Wiring Diagrams, Service Bulletins, and Recalls. And have made all viewable to academy members through the EAB website.
  • Acquired over 1,200 books and magazine back issues in our academy library and so far have made over 700 viewable to academy members through the EAB website.
  • Published over 500 DIY How-To articles about boat design, construction, inspection, operation, maintenance, troubleshooting and repair. We are working hard to do more.

We are currently formatting and polishing the Anchors Aweigh Academy online and hands-on courses. The Marine Surveying course has proven to be excellent for both the beginner and the seasoned surveyor, and especially helpful to the Do-It-Yourselfer.

FROM Donald: "This is an awesome website. I found the information that I needed right away from one of the over 10,000 free articles that you provide as a public service. I'm surprised that so much if this site is free. But I still signed up so I could access the thousands of expanded pages, interesting articles, and dozens of valuable programs! The member's library of books, magazines and videos that I can view online is really terrific! I understand that you and your staff are all unpaid volunteers. Please keep up the good work. And I commend you for your plans to add another 10,000 free informative articles over the next year. I'm thrilled to support you in this endeavor with my small membership donation. Thanks again for all your hard work."

FROM Huey: "I agree with my Uncle, I too have found the articles to be very enlightening. They say that it will take about 50,000 articles to cover the full scope that they have envisioned for the website. They have over 10,000 articles so far and that's doing pretty well, but it could take several years to get the rest. I also noticed that many of the Main Topic Pages and some of the article pages are still in the rough draft stage. I guess that they will fill in as they can get volunteers to work on them. But what I can't figure out is why anyone would spend the time writing informative in depth articles just to give away free to this website for publication? What's in it for them?"

FROM Dewey: "Well Huey, to me It looks like most of the articles on this website are written by very informed people, like boating instructors, boat designers, boat builders, riggers, electricians, fitters, marine repair technicians and marine surveyors. Writing such articles helps establish them as knowledgeable professionals. After all, this website was originally created by a school for marine technicians and marine surveyors. The website is growing in content every day. They even had to move to a bigger, more powerful server on October 15, 2018 because the website's traffic has been growing exponentially."

FROM Louie: "I agree with everyone above. This site is quickly becoming the ultimate reference resource about every aspect of boats and ships for everyone from the beginning recreational boater to the seasoned professional mariner. I use the topic pages on the right sidebar to browse around the website. It's like a Junior Woodchucks' Guidebook for Boaters. Their Members' Library of over 300 popular and obscure books and over 200 magazine back issues that can be viewed online is fabulous. The Academy's magazine is especially informative. On top of that, there is the "Ask-An-Expert program for members where you can get an expert's answer to any of your boat questions. And a whole years membership is only $25. What a deal! I really love being part of this "Everything About Boats" community and help provide thousands of helpful articles free to the public. I think that I'll sit down right now and write an article about my experiences boating with my uncle."

FROM Scrooge: "You rave about this website like it was the best thing since sliced bread. Well, I think it stinks. Sure, it has a lot of good information for boaters, and they're adding more every day, but it will probably never be finished. Furthermore, I don't even own a boat. And I wouldn't have a boat even if someone gave me one. Boats are a waste of money and time and energy and money! They're just a hole in the water you pour money into. If you gave me a boat, I'd sell it quicker then you could say Baggywrinkle. Then I'd lock up the cash with all my other money so I could keep my eye on it and count it every day. Bah humbug."

FROM Daisy: "I'm just so glad that Donald got the boat so we and the boys could enjoy boating — together. And of course all of the girls, April, May, and June, love to be on the water too, especially when that is where the boys are. Oh poor Scrooge, boating is more fun then you could possibly imagine."

FROM Scrooge: "After seeing how much fun you all have on the water together, I regret that I didn't have that much fun when I was young. I've had a change of heart, and I'm giving each of you a Lifetime Academy Membership."

FROM Editor: "For those of you that have stayed with us this far, Thanks. You inspire us to keep working on this labor of love. We know that we have a lot more to do. Ultimately, we hope that we can help you enjoy the wonder filled world of boating as much as we do. We are all waiting to see what you have to say about this webpage article. And we assure you, your corrections, updates, additions and suggestions are welcomed. Let's work together on this.
