I had a heck of a time getting the Bottom plate back on Flush and flat. The right bearing had to be put on slightly skewed, like pushed towards inside to make the bottom plate fit properly.
Ever had that problem..?

All of the singers ive worked on have had that problem. i think it was a design flaw. now i just automatically think to skew the brushroll when i put it in.

Nice Singer vac :)

I had one like that before; too bad I had to let it go when I moved :(

The SHEER PAIN of moving from one house to another!

Vacu finder.....

his was made long after that...those were sold here in Kansas in the mid 80's at a dollar mart called Dollar General for $39.99....the were then what the bissel Powerforce is the low-line cheap machine...


that is one great such nice shape to....that is not a common version...the more common is the bigger bagged model with the headlight...that was sightly more expensive and deluxe....,
