Re: LM 1935 Hand Brake Lever

I hear you Roland! I'm 6' 3" and have a great time trying to find somewhere to put my left knee because of the hand brake, It might have been easier to put it on the passenger's side of the gear lever and make it their problem! LOL!

Re: LM 1935 Hand Brake Lever

OK...this got me thinking, so here is a bit more clarification: The 1936 LM hand brake is the 'fly-off' type like the other earlier LM ones, but is a totally different design to the '33 to 35 ones, being based on the Bantam unit. The 1935 LM hand brake shown in the Singer handbook does have a slight...

Re: Le Mans Light Blue

Hello all! Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have had to travel for work and just completed a very big marketing project. But I digress! A few interesting points since we last spoke: Had a chat with Bob Dibben, who is no longer a Registrar with the SOC, and he told me that, unfortunately...

Re: LM 1935 Hand Brake Lever

I'll second that for sure!

It should be straight up and of the 'fly-off' variety. Pulling back on the lever releases it, whereas on the Sports 4 seaters you need to push the button on top to release the ratchette pawl.

Re: 1937 nine sports restoration

Looks in good shape! Don't see any broken teeth or badly mashed edges. Check the bearings for play and the input shaft/mainshaft phospher-bronze bushing for wear. First/reverse gears wear the most and jumping out of gear is often a symptom of a worn box. Make sure you don't lose the little tiny ball...

Re: Le Mans Light Blue

Hey David, As a keen 'complete originalist' - at least in terms of documenting the original specification as far as possible for future reference - I agree with what you say. Time has an effect on everything and we have to make a best guess in some cases. Many things related to Singer are open to de...

Re: SAVE A SINGER!

Yup...agree BRG, the grille slats are from a Nine - either A or 4A, not a 4AD!

Think I have a front apron for this car as well!

Re: Le Mans Light Blue

David!

That is excellent news!

I compared the chip reference in this thread and it is indeed hard to tell from a small RGB on-screen colour reference, but the Honda colour does look similar. It will be interesting to see what your apron tests yield when it arrives.

Responding to the previous post which says, "Sorry Phillip, it's the crank pulley": Here is the front timing case with the fan drive pulley put into position for clarification: 972cc engine casing.jpg And here is the front crankshaft drive sprocket which is located behind the engine casing...

Re: Wanted fan pulley 1934 lemans

The pulley mentioned in the previous post runs off the dynamo drive. They do indeed break on the flanges, but that pulley is nowhere near the crankshaft. Look forward to the clarification so that we can help you more specifically.

Re: Wanted fan pulley 1934 lemans

Hi Simon, OK...can you clarify what you mean...The 972cc engine used in the Le Mans has an alloy front timing cover and all of the gears are Inside that. There isn't a front crank pulley, but there is a front crank sprocket for the camshaft chain drive. The post-war 1074cc engine does have a cranksh...

Re: Gearbox oil

Hey Colin,

I can also vouch for Penrite products. They are excellent. Their steering box lube works wonders in the pre-war steering boxes as well.
