DescriptionA 4hp Acadia engine sits in the Wooden Boat Museum of Newfoundland and Labrador. Note the piece of wood in the flywheel - most fishermen removed the brass pin that came with the engines for starting them. They had a history of the spring breaking so that the pin would not retract upon starting. This brass pin caused many men to break hands, arms, or, in some cases, legs.
