Retired Colonel James Leach who was the B Company Commander at Singling personally told me (while I was a guest at his house) that his tank crews did not like them and had disconnected the gyrostabilizers for safety reasons. He also told me that he dismounted from his tank in Singling at one point and lead it on foot. Other than that, I have no suggestions for Singling.I'm not sure if this was mentioned elsewhere but remember that all Shermans with a 75 MA and any gyro equipped tank has an automatic advantage over the German's vehicles in gun duels.
For example, while I can't quote the exact modifiers I think any sherman that takes on a SPG from outside its covered arc is virtually assured to get the first shot (against the weaker side/rear armour) barring the presence of armour leaders, stuns etc.
