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!
