Re: 1928 Singer Senior rebuild and Hello !

Re: 'Bit of Wear' photo While it looks to be an original part, which is informative and very cooI --I save every unstressed original fastener I can on my 1936 Nine Sports-- I find myself concerned over the machining of that fastener and the mechanical role it is asked to play. Can you imagine why? I...

Re: 1928 Singer Senior rebuild and Hello !

Hello Rob, What a Brilliant project! That is one beautiful example of automotive history; grateful to see the body in what appears to be sound and strong condition. The frame bits you show seem almost too light to bear the apparent weight of that stately coachwork. Look very much forward to watching...

Re: STOWE 2017..A HOT TIME IN THE HILLS!

You look a happy lot in that gorgeous weather.

Wish I could have stayed for the full weekend. The rally was well worth the travel time for spending a great day motoring about with Tartas and Singers, in Singers. Let's see if we can get lost next year! This rally was far too tame!

Cheers, All,

David

Re: California Coupe

Hi Peter,

From this photograph the Singer shown appears to be an early Nine Coupe. Is that correct?

It has an unusual registration, as well. Interesting.

Please let us all know if you learn any more about it.

Cheers,

David

Re: Singers on the road!

Hi David, Writing to learn how your will recommission the André Hartford shockers. First, how much does your Singer Special weigh? Second, is it fair to assume you already know what level of damping you need? Either way, what level or specification of wooden insert will you use, or do you plan to ma...

Re: Washer stuck in timing chain

Thanks so much for posting the side-by-side photos of the Riley and Singer. They are instructive in themselves. It's interesting how appearances can be confusing. I sat in a Riley Imp some years ago and it simply didn't accommodate my height. The steering wheel was very close to my chest and, with i...

Re: Washer stuck in timing chain

Thanks for the posts that clarify this part of Riley's history. I missed the Lincock in my reading of their history. And who finds pictures of a car as rare as that, at night no less? Very cool. Thanks everyone for contributing to this part of the thread. I wouldn't call this a deviation from topic ...

Re: Washer stuck in timing chain

Hi Peter,

Thanks so much for the referral to BAT's listing of the Riley Lincock. I love the look of the car. I'll have to go back to my Riley book to determine if I didn't read closely enough or if this model wasn't included.

Hope all's well with you.

Cheers,

David

Re: Washer stuck in timing chain

Lovely to see him with his soon-to-be on the road Senior.

What is a Riley Lincock? I made a modest study of Rileys and don't recognise that model designation. It's a comely car.

Best to You Both,

David

ColinB,

Re: Singer on ebay

This item had no bids at the 'asking price' of $8,000. As a personal opinion, that seems a bit much for a non-original car that has no spare, no tools, and no way to determine, from the auction photographs, to what level of quality the retrofit of the Ford engine was done. The driver's seat sits squ...

Re: Singer pictures from personal archives

OK, David, Your collection of Singer-related autographs is absurd. Fabulous. Unlike anything I've ever seen. Did I mention fabulous? How did you find these people? or even know they were alive? I recognise quite a number of the signatures: Stanley Barnes, Rex King-Clark (both racing drivers), Servic...

Re: Tyre fitting help please

Hi Peter, Hi Casadacabra, I've found that, by inflating the tube as mentioned above, there's a considerably reduced risk of tube damage. The tube seems to be more likely to be caught on a tyre iron or worse, punctured, if the tube is not slightly inflated. Peter, your point about chipped paint is a ...
