This 8 HP Cushman is my first attempt at restoring an engine. It was a challenge, as I was a carpenter for forty years, recently retired, and had time on my hands.

The engine was at Luckenback, Texas, when found. It had been used for generation of electricity. I found it at Fredericksburg and hauled it to Minnesota and began the work. After breaking it loose and making some needed repairs, I mounted it on the truck I made. After belting it to another engine and some coaxing, it ran very well!
