I have a Cushman Frontline mower with the Robin WL3-1000 gas engine. I wish to replace the timing belt. Is there anything I should be aware of before I tear into this? And are the timing marks a simple line up, or is there something to watch out for?

Same here, all I found were parts diagrams.

One thing I did notice on the MTF thread Mark showed was the fact that there is a relationship between Cushman and Jacobsen.

I came across this site, which has lots and lots of information, especially when you start going through the parts look up section, that draws the connections to the various engine manufactures and how they went from one company to another. The Jacobsen Cushman connection comes out there too.

You might try contacting Jacobsen/Textron to see if they can help. I've posted it elsewhere, but it's worth repeating here. Their tech support has been very helpful to me when trying to find information about older Jacobsen mowers I have. They've sent pdf files back within a couple of days on nearly everything I've asked for.
Jacobsen - Renowned for Turf Maintenance Solutions

In fact, I just found this today.

If you go to that drop down menu for Out of Production, there's a Cushman Front line Mower listed and lots of manuals available, but what I looked at seemed to be a 2 cylinder "boxer" type of engine. Down at the bottom they give you a link to contact them if you can't find the manual you're wanting.

Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply guys. And thanks for the parts list. I hit on a couple of them too, and have a lead on a local source here in Ohio to get the parts. trying to find a service manual for this engine is like trying to find teeth in a chicken.

Well be sure to let us know if you find the manual, or teeth in a chicken, and if you do, remember, we want pictures

Did a search of your engine model and found this. Exploded diagrams with part list and part numbers.

http://www.oscar-wilson.com/MANUALS/ROBIN/WL3-1000.PDF

Scroll way down to the "Distributor" page and find the part number 22162KA010 and searched for it. These are the first three that came up. There were more.

Last one has a picture, which is always good. Hope that helps.

Did you find Parts? if so where?

I have been searching and searching for a needle or even a whole Carburetor and I have found nothing except the NLA part #'s, diagrams, and a lot of dead ends. I've tried Cushman, Robin Subaru, Mikuni, Zenith Carburetors, and about 4-5 larger parts websites with no luck. That's not even counting the numerous salvage yards craigslist ads, Ebay ads, google, and EVEN BING searches. Yes I've even used BING.

Did you folks ever find parts?

Call up Tim Stine @ 1-814-766-3675. He most definitely has the parts and the understanding of all of the old Wisconsin cast iron brutes to the imported Fuji rebranded engines and even some of the newer Teledyne military engines.

I appreciate the response. Unfortunately Tim only handles wisconsin not wisconsin robin. He was kind enough to give me a number for a place in penn that was not as helpful and told me that it wasn't worth their time if the part is no longer availble.
Btw on a little side note: kudos to those of you that when you can offer no help are at least cordial about it. And an even bigger kudos to those that try to help anyway when they believe its a lost cause. And shame on you that are no help and rude about it, especially when you are running a business that so called "specialize" in this stuff. I don't do this for a living and frankly if we were all experts you wouldn't have a freaking job/business! Good lord!

Having a good product or service alone certainly is not enough, follow up and customer service and support is key when building or maintaining a business. It is a shame when that aspect is overlooked.
