Hi Shaun, thanks for your post, don't know where Ca delta is. Am happy to copy manual if you need it.
Can you put me in touch with the operators of these engines?

Happy to help for Hall Scott heritage.

Will try to upload an old image of my father working on a Hall Scott V12 Defender in a Fairmile B subchaser.

Tony

Up lad of image not possible as it was too big

Hi Guys,

The most common Hall-Scott engines running today in (or for) boats are the Invader 6, Defender V-12 and the LM-6, LM-6A early 6 cylinder engines.

There is a Fay & Bowen 40' launch (Seneca) soon leaving Lake Tahoe for the east coast with a beautiful running LM-6A. There is another in a Belle Isle Bearcat on Tahoe named Cherokee at the Ehrman museum / estate. Both of these engines were cared for and restored by Sierra Boat Company.

There are misc Invaders in boats still as the Invader was an option engine for Belle Isle Bearcats at one point in time. There are a few Defenders in private collections but I do not know any running in boats. I have 2 Defenders and a bunch of parts as well. Mine are not running yet. I know of at least one other running Defender as well.

At 4,995 lbs and 2,182 cubic inches, I do not know of too many boats that could carry a Defender.

Manuals for the Defender and Invader are both available on this web site. These manuals also show up in Military form on EBAY periodically.

Cheers,

Lew

Thanks for your post Lew, to see and learn more about those amazing Hall Scott engines. Only the Defender V12 engines made it to Australia in small naval Fairmile motor launches and Air Sea Rescue crft for the Navy/airforce.

Would reall y love to get in touch with the owners of these engines to collect some installation images etc. it is difficult to have a passion/hobby in which my count has very little of the subject.

Any info, images contacts would be fantastic if possible.

Thanks again,

Tony M

Thanks for your reply Lew, my e-mail address is

tmaxfield@aapt.net.au and

maxfield.tony@trinity.wa.edu.au

Would love any images info, manual stuff.

Hall Scotts are my passion, as I was 3 years old as I stumbled around the engine room of a Fairmile B with my dad. I can still hear the beautiful ring of those engines, not the clang and rattle of diesels.

I have many images, if you would like some I can send. Also have Defender operating, overhaul and parts book if you need anything copied.

Thanks,

Tony

PS, Tried to include images but all were too big. I have not got the nack of this yet!

Greetings Art,

You are most likely referring to the Hall-Scott Defender model 2268 (right hand rotation) or 2269 (Left hand rotation) V-12 gas engine.

They are 2,182 cubic inch displacement. And the 650 HP unit is normally aspirated with 3 updraft Zenith carbs connected to an intake manifold that ALWAYS rots out and falls apart!

There are many varieties of appliances on these engines over the range of years they were made. This engine was built in both military and civilian dress as well.

There is a good reprint of the Defender manual here at OME for sale. Just ask Andrew for assistance.

Cheers,

Lew "The West Coast Sterling Guy"

P.S. Be careful with these engines as they are heavy! 4,995 lbs!

Im new to this forum and am located in Sydney Australia. I have a passion for antique boats and engines. I just picked up two Defenders (1 supposedly running). Man they are heavy my poor truck suffered getting one home. I didnt even try to put the other on my car trailer (ill get it next week). I also have several other cool engines in my boats. One is Rolls Merlin Powered and another that I just bought has a real early Universal six (dated 1923) but the motor has a corroded block (hopefully repairable). The place I got them from may have a manual for it but Im hoping if I dont do any good to get info to make the better one run on a stand. Anyone done this on this forum?

Hi everyone,
I am searching for information for the Defender installation in the 63 foot MK-IV crash boat built by Sagstad in the early 50's. My cousin served on one in Washington State in 1954 in the 17th CRBF at Mukilteo. I was thinking a "Phantom View" model like the old "Phantom P-51 Mustang" of the 60's would be great, one side external detail solid skin, the other side internal detail no-skin or see-thru skin.
Anybody that might have info on the Mukilteo boat's number and would share that it would be much appreciated.
Kind Regards,
Bill
