Almost every means of transport can be driven by a Renault engine. Besides building engines for vehicles used in road transport, transport by rail or in the air, Renault was also a considerable time occupied with building marine engines. Under the name Renault Marine, many, mostly diesel-driven engines, were delivered for various kinds of shipping applications. Several kinds of engines, depending,  of course, on the size of the boat and the required power, came available. [Apparently translated from French – Editor]

Chantier Naval Couach in Gujan Mestras, France had been marinizing Renault and Ford base engines for quite some time. Renault Marine acquired Couach‘s engine business in the 1970’s, and Renault Marine became Renault Marine Couach. Renault Marine Couach continued to support the Couach models based on Renault base engines with parts and service. Renault also continued marinizing, marketing and supporting the Couach models based on the Ford Industrial Diesel Engines. For more about the Ford based models, see the Ford Dorset section later on this page and our main article on Ford Industrial Power Products Diesel Engines.

Renault Marine Couach was acquired by Nanni Diesel in 1982 during Renault’s restructuring. Nanni’s support of Renault Marine Couach’s engine models has dwindled. Some Renault Marine Couach spare parts are reportedly still available from www.renaultcouach.com.

Renault History

On Christmas eve 1898 Louis Renault made his first demonstration tour and immediately reported 12 car orders. Production started shortly thereafter. Louis officially founded Renault-Frères together with two of his brothers on February 25, 1899. In the first half of 1899 80 cars were built. They found that the best way to promote their cars was to join in races and try to win, which was the case from 1899 to 1903. Demand increased, unfortunately fate too: in 1903 Louis’s brother Marcel Renault crashed and was killed during a race.

Production increased; More types and versions with different engines appeared. Renault also introduced themselves on various exhibitions. Beside private cars they started to produce taxis. In 1906 the production of lorries, buses and 4×4 vehicles started. During WW I The French army bought many Renault vehicles including tanks which later on served as the base of tractors.

The first tractors date back to 1919 and after 1930 Renault produced diesel engines too. In 1933, Renault acquired Caudron Frères Aircraft for whom they had been building engines. Caudron Frères was renamed Caudron-Renault.

Renault broke speed records regularly, and made more and more luxury cars.

During WW II, Renault again produced tanks, for the Allies before Germany invaded France, and for the Germans afterward, until the factory was almost completely destroyed by Allied bombs.

On 22 September 1944, shortly after the liberation of Paris, Louis Renault was arrested on charges of industrial collaboration with Nazi Germany. He was incarcerated in Paris’s Fresnes Prison being already seriously ill at the time. He was moved on 5 October to a psychiatric hospital at Ville-Evrard in Neuilly-sur-Marne, when his health quickly declined. On 9 October 1944 he was again moved, this time to a private nursing home at the clinic Saint-Jean-de-Dieu in the Rue Oudinot, Paris at the request of his family and supporters, having gone into a coma. He died on 24 October 1944, just four weeks after his incarceration started. No autopsy was performed and the exact cause of his death remains unclear. An official report at the time gave the cause of death as uremia. His company was seized and nationalized by the provisional government of France although he died before he could be tried. Later, in 1956, his wife claimed that he died of beatings and torture at the hands of guards in prison.

His factories were the only ones permanently expropriated by the French government, which henceforth got the name Regie Nationale des Usines Renault. However, Louis Renault had already done the preliminary work for the creation of the 4CV automobile. The 4CV was designed and tested secretly, and it was with this car that a new period for Renault began. Every Renault had a name or a number as an indication of its type. Again they competed within rallies and races, such as the Monte Carlo races.

Other brands and designers joined Renault in the course of time. Brands like Berliet, Latil and Mack belong to the history of Renault, but also the names Gordini and Alpine regularly appear.

About 1981 the color of the tractors changed; from red to the present-day orange-ocher. Claas, the agricultural machinery manufacturer based in Harsewinkel, Germany, acquired 80% of the Renault-Agriculture shares in 2003 and a 100% by 2008. In many countries the Renault tractors are sold as Claas. Only the type indication has survived.

Renault currently has a majority interest in Nissan Motors. They supply delivery vans to General Motors; Medium truck cabs to DAF. Renault is using John Deere engines for their tractors and Mack engines for the Magnum trucks. Volvo has a majority interest in Renault trucks, and Renault trucks, in turn, has a great part of the Finnish Sisu shares. Today Renault Nissan is the fourth largest automobile manufacturer in the world. The French government remains the single largest shareholder in Renault.

Vendor's Offerings

Renault offered gasoline (petrol) and diesel engines for marine service. The smaller engines were mostly Renault tractor designs. Larger engines were sourced from their automobile and truck lines, which included Saviem and Nissan and others were sourced from Ford of Britain. Engines ranged from 6hp up to over 600hp.

Smaller spark ignited (gasoline) and compression ignition (diesel) engines often shared the same basic cylinder block, piston rods and crankshaft, but with different heads and pistons. The gasoline engines were fitted with heads and pistons that created the lower compression ratio and accommodated the spark plugs. The diesel engines were fitted with heads and pistons that created the higher compression ratio and accommodated the fuel injectors.

To start the smaller engines, they were supplied with hand cranks or ropes and/or DC generators that doubled as starter motors that cranked the engines through the engine belts. A compression release was used when starting the motor by allowing the engine to turn over at a high enough speed to start when the compression release was deactivated. Hand cranking required almost superhuman strength. Starting with the DC Generator/Starter required batteries, battery cables, wire connections, engine belts and the Gen/Starter to be in good condition. The compression release had to be used when starting with the Gen/Starter. Later engines were available with conventional cranking motors that engaged the flywheel.

The smaller diesel engines, like other small cylinder displacement diesel engines, can experience difficulty starting especially during colder temperatures (below 50°f / 10°C) and/or after a period of dormancy (due to a loss of compression when the valves and piston rings loose seating resulting in excessive blow−by). The Owners Manuals describe the methods to be used in cold temperatures. When the fuel enrichment starting aids provided on some engines prove inadequate, the manual describes pouring fuel and oil directly into the air intake manifold through a special plug designed specifically for the purpose. See our Renault Product Documentation directory below for a list of manuals available for viewing. The use of diesel fuel blended for summer may lead to starting problems in colder temperatures. Winter blends contain more volatile additives like kerosene. None of these engines came equipped with glow plugs, AC block heaters or DC intake air heaters which would be helpful. The heaters can be obtained aftermarket. Using starting fluid such as ether is NOT recommended as it tends to detonate causing serious internal damage to these engines.

Ford "Dorset" (2700 & 2710 Range) Diesel Engines
(1965∼1982)

The fuel injection pumps on 2700+ engines (1965+) were gear driven directly
without the exposed shafts and couplings used on "Dagenham" models.

Lehman marinized FORD 2701E Dorset base engine.
The directly driven fuel injection pump caused more rapid wear of the engine's helical cut timing gears.
The "Two Shaft" Raw Water Pump has yet to be replaced with "Single Shaft" Pump to avoid shaft failure.
Also note the remote oil filter, which had been inverted to fit into the shipping crate is now righted.
See other "Fixes" listed in this article that need to be accomplished to prevent engine damage.

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 4 cylinder 2701E and 2706E (an inclined 2701E), the 6 cylinder 2703E, 2704E, 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 earlier Dagenham series 4D & 6D 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, like the Dagenham series. They had pressed steel timing gear covers and angle cut timing gears.

The turbocharged Dagenham 6D Mark-2 six cylinder 330 cubic inch 510ET (automotive) and 590ET (Industrial) engines were carried over until late 1968, after the turbocharged 2407ET Dorset engine was released and the 6D engine stocks were exhausted.

The Lehman marinized versions of the Dorset 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 Helical (curved) 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 Dover 2720+ models introduced in 1982 were fitted with the more robust, but noisier, straight cut gears. See How To Identify Ford Diesel Engines.

In April 1965 Ford launched the "D-Series" lorry (pictured above) to replace the Thames Trader. These vehicles were fitted with automotive versions of the new 2700 series engines which were fitted into the lorries at a 45° slant (incline) to the left. These engines were offered in 254, 330 & 363 cubic inch displacements with "dry" cylinder liners as the upright 2701E, 2703E, and 2704E respectively, and the corresponding inclined versions as 2706E, 2708E and 2709E respectively.

Ford 2706E Inclined (slanted 45° left) version of 2701E Diesel Engine.

If an inclined version of this engine is un-slanted to an upright configuration, the oil pan sump and oil pickup must be replaced with the upright engine's type of sump and pickup to prevent aeriation and interruption of adequate engine oil flow to the engine's shafts, bearings, etc. 

In 1968, The turbocharged Dagenham 6D Mark-2 six cylinder 330 cubic inch 510ET (automotive) and 590ET (Industrial) engines were succeeded by the new turbocharged 363ci Dorset 2704ET which stayed in production until the turbocharged Dover engines went into production in 1982.

In 1968, CAV bought out SIMMS, Ford's supplier of fuel system components including filters, injectors and injection pumps. CAV retained the SIMMS brand name on the later production.

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 nearly identical to, except that they had different pistons with a slightly lower compression ratio (15.5:1 vs 16.0:1).

In late 1970, Ford introduced the Late Dorset Series 2710 Range engines which were produced from 11/1970 to 1982. This range included the 4 cylinder 2711E and 2712E, and 6 cylinder 2713E, 2714E, and 2715E, all of which featured boreable "Parent Bore" cylinders. Like the 2700 Range engines, the 2710 Range engines were fitted into the D series lorries on a slant (inclined). The 2704ET Turbocharged "Dry" Liner engine was carried over from before and continued in production until 1982. Ford first published a marine duty rating for the 2704ET in 1970.

The 4-cylinder 2712E was soon marinized into the popular Lehman 80, and the 6-cylinder 2715E into the even more popular Lehman 120. Most all the Dorset Series engine models were eventually marinized by Commercial Marinizers or other third-parties using marinization "Kits". While most of these engines were marinized "brand new" from Ford, some were used "high time" engines approaching the end of their service life when salvaged out of lorries or from rock crushers, generators and farm equipment, then marinized and put into marine service. That is why it is always wise to determine their true condition before purchasing a vessel so equipped. by conducting a thorough engine survey with sea trial, fluid analysis, etc.

In 1977, Ford of Britain licensed Ford-Otosan in Turkey to start producing Ford 2710 Range Dorset engines, primarily the 2715E. New Ford-Otosan built Dorset engines were supplied through Ford Industrial Power Products to marinizers including Lehman. Used Ford-Otosan built engines were later marinized by individuals using the various marinizing components and kits available at the time. The Ford-Otosan built engines were indistinguishable from the British built engines and had Ford serial numbers that began with "S". Later Ford-Otosan built Dover engines were identified by a raised "OTOSAN" cast in the engine block and Ford-Otosan serial numbers that started with the engine model number.

Primary Commercial Marinizers of British Ford Diesel Engines
(Including marinizing component and "Kit" suppliers)
Some marinizers marinized only "brand new" engines from Ford Power Products while others marinized only "used take-out" engines, while still others marinized both new and used engines. Most marinizing component suppliers made their components available to other commercial marinizers, repair shops and individual private parties who used them to marinize new and/or used engines or maintain/repair existing marinized engines.
Many commercial marinizers and component suppliers are no longer in business.

The very popular 6.22L Lehman 120 (6D380) using the Ford 2715E Base Engine.

*In 1981, Bob Smith, who was the former managing director of Lehman Power, founded American Diesel Corporation in Kilmarnock, VA to provide aftermarket marinizing replacement parts and support for Lehman marinized Ford Industrial Power (UK) diesel engines. They also produced their own marinized replacement engine packages from the last of the Ford-Otosan 6.22L engines (similar to the Ford-Lehman Super 135). They were rated at 120, 125, 130, 136 and 140 horsepower. American Diesel Corp can supply most of the parts required to accomplish the "Fixes" that need to be accomplished to prevent engine damage. The americandieselcorp.com website has recently been updated with new features including Parts Lists, a Parts Order Form, and a Contact Form. Bob was well known for his Lehman Workshops. We are saddened to have to report that Bob has passed away. See Passagemaker's heartfelt and informative obituary. Bob's very capable and diesel-experienced son, Brian, will carry on the good work that would make his father proud.

Ford & Lehman "Fixes" that need to be accomplished before the engine suffers damage:

  1. Fix engine misfire before injection pump governor and internal engine damage results.
  2. Fix fuel injection pump lubricant before injection pump & governor damage results.
  3. Fix engine oil filter hoses and attachment before internal engine damage results.
  4. Fix engine oil cooler before cooler fails and engine damage results.
  5. Fix engine drive gears before gears fail and serious internal engine damage results.
  6. Fix "Two Shaft" raw water pump before shaft fails and engine overheat damage results.
  7. Fix Exhaust Elbow before engine overheating or hydrolocking results.
  8. Flush water jacket around rear-most cylinder and fit rear coolant fitting.
  9. Test and maintain engine coolant to prevent corrosion at wet liner cylinder seals.
  10. Fix coolant cap and flange, and fit coolant return tank to prevent scored piston.
  11. Fix coolant hoses before they fail and engine overheat damage results.
  12. Fix cause of premature engine drive belt failure before belt fails.
  13. Properly store spare drive belts in order to get home without a second failure.
  14. Fix substandard engine wiring before faults cause serious failures.
  15. Fix transmission fluid cooler before cooler fails and transmission damage results.
  16. Fix Velvet-Drive CR2 pinion nut before nut loosens and destroys transmission.

Notes: Many parts for these "Fixes" are available from American Diesel Corp's Website.

NOTES: +Production and availability continued years afterwards. Example 1: The production of the Dagenham 4D Mark-2 moved from Ford in Dagenham, UK to EBRO in Spain after 1965 and continued up until the late 1990's. Example 2: The production of the Dagenham 6D Mark-2 Turbo Charged model continued at Dagenham up until July, 1967. Example 3: The production of the 2704ET continued at Dagenham until 1982. Example 4: The production of select Dover models moved to Ford-Otosan in Turkey and continued there after 1991 into the new century where they were soon labeled "DoverTech" models.
*2702E was never put into production, however several major components including the cylinder block for the 2703E model engine are identified with the 2702E prefix in their part numbers and raised cast-in "raw" casting numbers. See Ford 2702E for more details.
**2706E, 2708E and 2709E are inclined versions of 2701E. 2703E and 2704E respectively.
***2701C, 2703C and 2704C were produced for only one year (11/1969 thru 10/1970) and were "parent bore" immediate forerunners of the 2711E. 2713E and 2714E engines respectively.

NOTES: *Ford apparently never put an engine with the model number "2702E" into production, however several major castings including certain cylinder blocks have "2702E" cast into them as shown below. How this came about is due to Ford's part numbering scheme. What appears to be an engine model number is in this case just the first part of the individual component's part number and it was taken from the model number of the first engine that the part was initially intended to fit, even if ultimately that engine was never put into production. As shown below, this number is followed by "6015" which is the designator in the part number for all of Ford's "raw" engine block castings. As these castings are machined and assembled, they are assigned different part numbers depending on the engine block's features and degree of assembly. The engine blocks identified by the "2702E 6015" part number as shown below were ultimately utilized to build the Ford 2703E model engines. See How to Identify Ford Diesel Engines and our webpage for the Ford 2702E.

NOTES: The earlier 2701E is not to be confused with the slightly larger parent bore 2701C which was the immediate forerunner of the 2711E. The 2701C was nearly identical to the 2711E. The 2701C had a 15.5:1 Compression Ratio and the 2711E had a 16.0:1 Compression Ratio.
*Marinizers may have used the 2701C as the Base Engine for their marine engines (like the Lehman 6D254) until the 2712E went into production in 11/1970 (see Lo2 and J#).

NOTES: The earlier 2704E is not to be confused with the slightly larger parent bore 2704C which was the immediate forerunner of the 2714E. The 2704C was nearly identical to the 2714E. The 2704C had a 15.5:1 Compression Ratio and the 2714E had a 16.0:1 Compression Ratio.
*Marinizers may have used the 2704C as the Base Engine for their marine engines (like the Lehman 6D380) until the 2715E went into production in 11/1970 (see Lo2 and J#).

NOTES: This is the popular engine marinized by Lehman and known as the Lehman 80 (Leh-80).
*Marinizers may have used the 2701C as the Base Engine for their marine engines (like the Lehman 6D254) until the 2712E went into production in 11/1970 (see Lo2 and J#). For Generator rated engines, see next Item below.

The Engine Identification Plate below identifies this particular engine as a Ford model 2712E, which was the 4.15L (254ci) "Dorset" base engine marinized into the popular Lehman 80. This engine was rated at a Maximum 80 horsepower in "Overload" at 2500 RPM. See Ford Duty Ratings for the explanation of the "Overload" rating.

The Engine Identification Plate below identifies this particular engine as a Ford model 2712E that has been set-up to drive a 60-cycle alternating current generator at 1800 RPM and could produce a continuous 59 horsepower (according to Mermaid specs).

The Engine Identification Plate below identifies this particular engine as a Ford model 2712E that has been set-up to drive a 50-cycle alternating current generator at 1500 RPM and could produce a continuous 50 horsepower (according to Mermaid specs).

NOTES: This is the popular engine marinized by Lehman and known as the Lehman 120 (Leh-120). *Marinizers may have used the 2704C as the Base Engine for their marine engines (like the Lehman 6D380) until the 2715E went into production in 11/1970 (see Lo2 and J#).

   

*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 (i.e. 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. See Ford Duty Rating for more about Ford's "Overload" rating.

*The "OL = Overload" Duty Rating power output is achieved by these diesel engines only when the fuel injection control (the "rack" in most "Jerk" type fuel injection pumps) reaches maximum fuel duration and the engine is under heavy load. This "overload" power output is intended to be reached only occasionally for short duration situations such as when accelerating, as it results in over-fueling (a fuel rich mixture) that will cause rapid carbonization which in turn will severely shorten the service life of the engine. Therefore, it is recommended that the engine, gearing, propeller, etc. be set up so the fuel injection control will back off to a position that will provide the best ratio of fuel to air during sustained operation in order to achieve a long engine service life. Far too often, diesel marine engines are poorly matched to the watercraft by the builder and/or are over-propped with too much pitch, forcing them to suffer the serious consequences of over-fueling. See our article on Selecting the right diesel engine to discover a vital component that most all diesel engines lack, but almost every gasoline engine is equipped with.

General Comments About the Website

FROM Donald: "This is an awesome website. I found the information that I needed right away from one of the over 20,000 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 100,000 articles to cover the full scope that they have envisioned for the website. They have over 20,000 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 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, many thanks, and we hope that you found this little narrative informative. Your faithful support inspires us to keep working on this phenomenal website. 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.
