I worked at Acadia Gas Engines in Bridgewater,NS, during the last years of their engine manufacturing. It was a sad day when they closed the shop. However, I do have some technical information on some marine engines if any readers are interested. I can make a copy, scan it and send it via e-mail.

I'll be the first to say I would be very interested! I have a running 5hp Acadia. Unfortunately I have no idea of the age. It has a S/N of 55, but have come to realize that probably means nothing.
As sad as it must have been it must have also been a facinating experience to work there.
I bet there are a bunch of people here who would love to hear about some of your recollections.

Having spent some time doing QA in small and large N.S shipyards and foundaries I bet it was sad, fond memories of decent places to work.
I hear folks in shipbuilding are doing well there once again. That is great.
Would love to own a copy of any material you have.

Thanks for the offer, I would like a copy. I have a 3, 4, 6 1/2 and 8 Acadia make and break and a 5 jump spark.

I overhaul an Acadia 2 cylinder 8 hp. I'm really interseted in technical data like main bearing clearance, big end rod clearance, water pump rod clearnace.
In other word, i'm looking an overhaul manuel or any kind of information who can help me to make a good job
