Default Superior 50 HP help needed

I just found a 50 hp Superior, #B1272. Looking it over I see the connecting rod is missing and some bolt on stuff I am not sure of. Does anyone have anything that can tell me more about this engine?

Sounds like a good find to me, I have never seen a Superior serial # that starts with a letter. Is this an open crankcase engine? Is there any way you could post some pictures of your new find?

If this is an open crank style you can see spec sheets on my Superior page. The sheets are from an early (1905) National Supply catalog. At 50, I would think it might be a newer model. Post a picture if possible, someone can probably help define what is missing.
