Singer model 7-33 that has a pin sheared off and when replaced machine out of time. pin removed machine works but have to stop after about 8 strokes and pull thread snug or rat nest on bobbin side

indicates that the top tension is not tight enough
you can check the needle to hook timing yourself
by hand turn the machine over until the needle is in the fully down position
just as the needle starts to rise the hook should be at or just next the eye of the needle so that a fraction more turning places the hook over the eye of the needle
it that is not the relationship of the needle and hook adjust the needle cam on the shaft at the end of the machine or take it to a sewing machine repair shop to have it adjusted

Cannot get the bobbin thread to loop with the top thread on singer 338

correct timing is when the needle is fully down and is just starting to go back up
at that point the hook should be just about at the eye of the needle
past or before indicates that the timing is out
way out can be the belt that drives the bottom section and just a bit can be the adjustment for the needle crank on the sliding shaft at the front of the machine

The machine will sew about three inches then the hook gets several threads around it and stops. I think the timing is off. How to set hook timing on a 2263 Singer Sewing Machine?

You can download an instruction manual for Singer machines from here, just type in the model number and click "search".

This sounds more like top thread is not in tension though so have you checked tension is working okay?

However, to adjust timing you will need a service manual or general instructions for a horizontal hook sewing machine. You may find a video that helps with this on You-tube, I just leave it to the experts.
