Here you go Leonard. This a 15Hp Hit and Miss # 15011. You guys all need to know that the Mill type engines were all Numbered by the Horse Power is the first two digits and the rest of the numbers where the serial #. So my # 15011 ... 15 Hp 11th 15 Hp built, Wayne's engine 40 Hp and the 088th, 40 Hp built.

A good friend of mine was working for Superior in Springfield Oh. about 15 years ago, and he called and talked to a few of the old guys and they all think my engine my have been built in 1898 or 99 and none of them ever knew that Superior ever built an engine with Ported exhaust, witch mine has

Found this superior last month did'nt even think to look for the serial#. No tag on cylinder. where do I look ? Seems like both flywheel had the flang for a clutch. Need to take a tape measure back and see what the bore is.

Leonard, go over to the gas engine page or do the search on 15Hp Superior a rare bird. There is about 15 or so Photos of it and a 2 youtube video's of it running from when I did the restoration last winter. The ignition is spark plug with a timer on the end of the side shaft. and as far as the ported exhaust, this style (hit&miss) are the only one that used it, I hope that answered your question about the ported exhaust, or be a little clearer in what you want to know about it.......DH

To knowledgeable Superior fans out there, I have some dumb questions. My engine lost its tag long ago. It's 12" bore & 18" stroke.
- Is it a 25 HP model?
- About how much would it weigh?

Depends. Is it 2 cycle or 4 cycle? Open crankcase? Closed crank with sheet metal or cast iron? The 1939 National Supply catalog does not list any Superior engine with 12 X 18 bore X stroke. In 2 cycle version a 12.5 X 16 is 45hp and the shipping weight is 9700 pounds. In 4 cycle versions a bore X stroke of 14 X 16 is 40hp or 45hp or 50hp at 200, 225 and 250 rpm respectively with a shipping weight of 11,000 pounds. All of these have cast iron enclosed cranks. The 1930 catalog does not list bore X stroke dimensions. These engines have sheet metal covered cranks and a 40hp weighs 6800 pounds for 2 cycle and a 40hp 4 cycle oil country type weighs 9130 pounds.

It's an open crankcase, 4-stroke, oil field style engine. It's one of the common varieties, with a side shaft & vertical flyball governor. Geeze, I hate those people who steal the brass tags!
