1934 Windscreen Posts / staunchness

For now, I lumped all the pre-war cars together, I would LOVE for there to be enough demand to split it into groups (hint...hint, post here about your pre-war Singer)

1934 Windscreen Posts / staunchness

Postby DarcyG » Mon May 15, 2017 12:50 am

I have need of at least one right windscreen post for an 1934 LM )13 5/8 top to bottom). Can anyone assist? i don't need the knobs, just the post.

I also have available to swap or sell a left hand post (14 1/4 inches top to bottom) that I believe is from a larger Singer LM 6??? It is exactly the same style as the 34 LM, but larger as the size above suggests. See photos

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,

if my car has them (I will look in the morning) I can take detailed measurements for you, or I can "loan" you one and you can take your own measurements, just not sure I have them on my car.

Hello Darcy
I recently restored the windscreen posts/pivots for my 1934 Le Mans 9. A couple of images of the original parts and some working sketches I made are attached. I needed to hand fettle the parts as I went along, especially to ensure that the tabs on the upper arms were a good fit in the locking plates, so please regard my sketches as a guide only. As the original knurled nuts were missing I purchased a pair from the Hardwicks. One puzzle is that there is not enough clearance between the lock plates and the knurled nuts for a coil spring as shown in Dave Hardwick's sketch. I think I have solved this by making conical springs from 19 SWG piano wire (see photo), but I haven't tested this in anger yet. Dave's notes described the pivot shaft being fixed to the pedestal by a brass weld - not ideal when everything has been chrome plated! I'm thinking of trying bearing fit loctite.

Hope this helps - let me know if you need any more information.

Best wishes
Dave Bayliss

Hi

That windscreen post will also fit a 1935 LM four seater.
How much do you want for it?

I made the disks and now realise that the position of the pivot shaft that have to be brazed in place is critical to the alignment. These are next on my list to make, so I will ensure the brazed end is slightly longer to ensure correct alignment and then cut back once fixed. The spring is still a quandry, I may need to make one also. I was also thinking of loctite - has it worked for you?

Sorry Darcy - I haven't reached the stage yet where I can fit the windscreen. Hopefully within another month... or two... or three... I'll let you know when I reach that stage, if you haven't beaten me to it.
