Re: Under frame window seal

Hey John, Fred is correct. Bill had made the original style windscreen rubber and sold a lot of them. He also did a very nice proper enameled radiator badge. ASCO bought all of Bill's spare after he passed away, so I am sure Barry will steer you in the right direction. I believe the spares are now i...

Re: 1934 Windscreen Posts / staunchness

Hey Darcy,

The larger windshield post you have is for an early Roadster - R or A series up to 1949.

The 'eyelet' on the upper section is the giveaway...it's the pivot for the side screen.

Hope that helps!

Cheers,
Phillip

Hey Fred,

Something slightly hilarious about the fact that Summit Racing sells tractor mufflers!

It is indeed the same beast!

Re: New Owner Here

Hey Scott, Here's a great photo from Fred Tag's 4AD restoration album. Looks like he may have used the muffler I mentioned...or something very similar: Fred Tag muffler.jpg This is a great view to show the location and set-up of the muffler assembly. Fred mounted the system differently to the origin...

Re: Bell Housing Strengthening Bracket

Another update on the bracket project... My bellhousing arrived back from the welder and some time was spent dressing the repairs. He said besides the arched crack right where the missing bracket should have been, there were a host of stress spider cracks around the casting which needed attention. W...

Re: New Owner Here

Hey Scott, My pleasure to assist and please feel free to ask questions. I have some Roadster spares left over so if you are looking for anything, please ask. I might post a lot of the stuff in the parts for sale once I get a chance. The following info may help in regards to mufflers: It's been a few...

Re: lockheed decal

Hey David, It isn't rocket science you're right, but takes research and time to get the design and materials correct. We sourced a supplier who could do the correct die-cut round edges and oil/brake fluid resistant inks, but that comes at a price! I've checked out the 'I say, ding dong' website and ...

Re: 1934 Singer on Prewar Car

Ironic that the seller's name should be 'Phillippe'... When I was actively looking for a 1.5, this car was extremely original (owned by Paul Barnes I think) and it was suggested by a number of SOC folk that this was the 'right' 1.5 for me. It was...but sadly now well out of financial reach! She's be...

Bell Housing Strengthening Bracket

Not all Singer unobtainium is exotic…take this unobtrusive yet vital part that is often missing. Bellhousing Bracket ready to fit.jpg It’s the gearbox bell housing strengthening bracket. The counterpoint to the casting on the other side created to cover the starter motor shaft and pinion. The two gi...

Re: Transmission tunnel

Guys, I believe the moulds created by the late Roadster guru Bill Haverly are in the hands of ASCO in the UK. I think they may have made up a batch. These are fiberglass but look like the original at a distance. Might be worth checking with them via their club site: http://www.asco.org.uk/index.html...

Re: New Owner Here

Hey Scott I owned and restored Singer Roadsters for many years before going totally pre-war. My only post-war Singer now is 1928, which means post great war!

Re: lockheed decal

Hey Bill, This is actually another project we are working on at the 'Canadian Singer Skunkworks'. We have some artwork done but our last quote for a die-cut 3 colour brake fluid resistant sticker was @$700.00CAD to set up and run. The original would have been a water based transfer no doubt, the sam...

Re: LM 1935 Hand Brake Lever

Hey David K, The shift lever in the photo was just hanging slightly to the left in neutral...no relevance to the actual relationship to the brake lever! The idea of the photo was to show the angle of the brake lever casting on the 1935 cars. This is irrelevant to your car which should look like this...

Re: LM 1935 Hand Brake Lever

David K: No need to do all of that really. As you can see from the photo of my car in an earlier post in this thread, the lever is straight up on the 36/37 cars. I was working on a '35 LM Speed Model last weekend and took the opportunity to snap a photo of the handbrake to complete the study: 1935 L...
