Default 20 HP Two cycle Superior

Does anyone have backround information on a two cycle Superior? This has an enclosed piston on the back side with a steam engine style slider before the crank.

Johnboy, I'm not familiar with a Superior engine, but the "slider" is called a CROSSHEAD and it indicates that it is a Double Acting engine whereas combustion occurs on both the top and bottom of the piston similar to steam forcing the piston in both directions..

2 cycle engines do not fire in both directions. The back side of the cylinder that is enclosed is used to draw in the new fuel mixture and then the mixture is passed to the head end of the cylinder for combustion.

Tom Winland Is right. They work like the bessemer engines. I found a 25hp 2 cycle Superior still the power house, but still trying to get the owner to sell it to me. It would look good next to my 25hp & 35hp 4 cycle Superiors!
