Default Superior 30hp

A friend was contacted last night by a man w/ a superior 30hp for sale. The owner did not know much about it but said it was a inclosed crank,cross head model. It is on a cotton trailer that is modified w/ a 3-5 lb as a starting motor. He said it dosent have a tag so i cant look up anything about it. Did they have any w/ inclosed crank? Was a cross head always a side shaft? Anyone have a pic of what it may look like. Any help is appreciated

The Superiors that i have seen with a cross head were alwas 2 strokes they had a side shaft but i would consider it more like a distributor shaft that ran the mag they also had a big air cleaner on top these were the newer Superior. i'm sorry i don't have any pictures of one
