    Default Why Singer went to the three pin plug, maybe

    This is pure speculation, but it certainly makes cord replacement easier. This was in a newer 66. If I had had to choose between a buying 3 pin plug and controller or paying a tech to re-wire this I know which way I would have gone.

    Looks the same to me just in a different outer component. Looks like it's already been rewired before.

    Yes, that does look like it's been rewired. Those caps look too new for the machine. Looks like how my Hubby does it! He's an electrician by trade and he has his own way of wiring sewing machines. He does it just like how he wires up $$$$$ of commercial disconnects and panels!

    I think Singer had three pin plugs by 1930, at least on 66 and 99s. They are a bit different than the potted motor setup, but I have only seen tree the pin type. The early 99s with original knee lever controller has a bit different wire and plug than the later. I guess the wiring is much the same, but you really have to pay attention to which wire goes where to be paralell with the diagram.

    Mickey I have a 201-2, 15-91, and a 15-125. The 3 pin connector is the same as my 221, 301s, and my 404.
