This is a Genuine Antique/Vintage Singer 301/301A Hook Assembly.

The main hook portion can also be used in a Featherweight 221/222, but the inner cup that holds the bobbin must be replaced. I have included a video below illustrating this simple procedure. This must be done because the 221 is a straight shank machine, where the 301 is a slant shank machine. Be weary of anyone selling 221 parts with Singer numbers starting with 170XXX. Those were made for 301's.

Singer part # 170128. The inner bobbin cup has Singer part # 170166. The hook is Singer part # 170160 and is stamped "Simanco USA".

This fits Singer models 301/301A.

The parts have been totally disassembled and cleaned to ensure proper functionality. It was tested in a Vintage Singer 301 after being reassembled.

This is a stock photo, but all assemblies are in good to very good condition. The metal may have some mild discoloration.

Here is a video I made showing how to remove and install part number 170166. You can then put your 221 cup part # 45752 in its place. And yes I did try the new style hook with an old style cup on a 221 and it worked.

Comes with both mounting screws.
