I have a Cushman boat engine that I would like to restore. Cushman made these prior to getting into the scooter business and I understand they were quite successful with these engines.
I have the correct cyl,crank, and crank case, but question some of the other parts. Where can I get information on Cushamn Marine Engines and parts? Any suggestions? Thanks Bill Somerville, Columbus, MS.

Scot Cushman contacted us some time ago, he was very interested in researching Cushman marine engines. I don't think he will mind me posting his email address because he was very anxious to correspond with anyone about Cushman engines. His address was: cec@swcp.com ... although I don't know if it is still a good address or not.

I would imagine there is some overlap with parts on the stationary Cushman engines... and there are a lot of vendors that sell stationary and farm engine parts. Gas Engine Magazine is a good resource for those vendors.

Maybe someone has some Cushman marine literature.

Regards,
Andrew

Andrew: Thanks for your reply. The stationary, expecially the scooter engines were a different configuration from what I have seen. I have several stationary engines. Years ago I started the Cushman Club of America which was for the scooters. Bill

Billy,

the very early stationary engines seemed to be marine engines (2 cycle) converted to stationary use. Much like Gray, Detroit or Red Wing did. many were used as binder engines, which is what cushman made after stopping making marine engines. there was an article on very early cushmans in GEM in the last year. is yours a 2 or 4 cycle engine?

Bill a friend just bought a binder engine that bears a considerable resemblance to a marine engine. It is a four cycle with an automatic intake valve, spoked flywheel, separate gear water pump, Schebler Mod D carb etc. I wondered if it was a marine engine on a stationary base, but if so it would have to be the 'pedestal' type base used on some early marines.

robert, cushman made 2 cycle marine engines by 1902, and also offered it as a stationary use. the stationary had a governor. in 1908, they made a 4 cycle stationary, don't know if it also was marine. in 1910, the engine you describe came out, and was made for many years as a stationary engine. that later 4 cycle binder is very, very common at midwest engine shows.

Thanks Bill. This one is a Model C, 4hp, 800rpm serial number 4---. Any idea how old it is and if it is indeed the common binder engine? Thanks.

Thanks for your assistance. The engine I have looks identical to the ad. Tag says 4 hp @ 900 rpm, serial # 2063. Pattent date July 1, 1902.
Now all I need to do is find a parts or repair manual.
I also have a Cushman Binder engine 1912 year. and Cushman Cub, which they made for Sears.
Thanks: Bill S.

I live in Lincoln where mthe Cushmans were made, and I've collected & restored only Cushmans for 18+ years, and some of the information that has been posted is partially correct. The original engines were 2-cycle "stationary" engines used foir farm/industrial purposes. Everett Cushman being a boating fan saw an ad for a boat race, converted one of his "stationary" engines to marine and won the race - that started their production of marine engines. Also, there are 1 or 2 companies that carry FEW parts for the Cushman 4-cycle "binder" (model C 4 H.P.) engines, but very little is available for the 2-cycle engines. I have original catalogues on the 2-cycle marine and stationary engines going back to 1902 - they give specs, have detailed drawings, show/list parts and much more.
Bill S. - I contacted you at least twice a couple of years ago and never heard back from you. Jim
