Acadia are two cycle, two port gasoline engines that use make and break ignition and Schebler Model D carburetor.

During the early 1900s many technical books were published that explain engine operation. These have been digitized and can be read on-line or printed copies can be purchased at very attractive price, less than $20 from indigo.ca or other on line book sellers.

Here is a link to a very useful book that is recommended reading to learn about Acadia operation.

Carl Herbert Clark (1911) - Marine Gas Engines, Their Construction and Management - at this on- line link
https://archive.org/details/marinegasengine00clargoog

Basic two cycle, two port operation - pages 2- 4
Make and break ignition - pages 34 -38
Carburetors - pages 25 29 ( Schebler page 29)
Check valve for two port engine page 31
