Singer - Singer Ten

The Singer Ten name was used on a number of Singer models throughout the years, the Ten denoting the RAC Horsepower rating. :

- The first Singer Ten was a (63x88mm) 1096cc side valve four cylinder built between 1912 and 1924. It was a conventional chassis with semi elliptic springs front and back. In 1916 the wheelbase was lengthened from 7 feet 6 inches to 8 feet, and the track was also widened by 4 inches to 8 feet. Toward the end of production the springs were changed to quarter elliptic, while in the final year of production the engine got a monoblock with overhead valves.

Singer 10/26 built from 1925 to 1928. This was the modernised version of the earlier 10hp Singer, with overhead valve engine The engine was stroked from 88mm to 105 mm increasing the capacity to 1308cc to give 26 bhp, hence the 10/26 model. The chassis was lengthened and the track widened again.

- Another Singer Ten model was launched in 1930, having a side valve 1261cc, that was available until 1932.

- Tyre sizes for the Singer 10:

- 1096cc Singer built from 1913 to 1925 originally fitted 700x80 and 26x3 tyre size. These 2 sizes are the same and Blockley make the best 26x3 (700x80) ever made.

- 1308cc Singer 10/26 (1925 to 1928) had tyre size 4.95x20 we would suggest our 475/500x20 Blockley.

- The Singer 10 of 1930 to 1932 originally was fitted with 27x4.40 tyres.  Blockley 450x19 would be what you should fit today.
