Default Superior 5k

Picked up a lightly used, 80's vintage "Superior" 5k generator. Label indicates it's a model 50E36. Used lightly because the plastic brush holder was melted... Looking for a parts solution but can't find much on this brand. I'm certain it was rebranded as a Superior, but not having much luck identifying the true mfg. Anyone recognize it?

Thanks for the reply, but I've checked sources of both makers and neither fit this description. The Winco's of this size have a distinct design (very different from this one), and the Homelites aren't as well built. I'm surprised this one is so tricky to ID. I wouldn't have thought there were that many players in this size market. Anyone else seen a similar unit with a different brand or perhaps the true manufacturer?
