SOURCE: Singer 1120 timing
Timing" is the alignment of the needle at its lowest point and the hook on the bobbin case. The point of the hook must pass directly behind the "scarf" of the needle fo the interlocking loop of a "single needle lockstitch" machine to occur. Look closely at the needle. You will see the long groove along the front of it. This is where the thread rides as the needle goes up and down. If you look at the back of the needle you will see a flattened area just above the point. This is the "scarf"; it's flattened to permit the hook of the bobbin case to run right by it and catch the loop.
When a machine is out of "time", the hook is either too early or too late, OR to far away from the scarf to make the connection. You can send a machine out of time by hitting a pin, or breaking a needle "hard" (too fast through too many layers, etc.). You can usually identify a machine that is out of time by multiple skipped stitches at high speeds, or by stitching fast and then quickly putting it into reverse. Sometimes, you can scrape by if you rotate the insertion of your needle a little bit, this can help compensate for minor timing issues.

the hook driver (still in machine) is 1/2 moon shape. The hook is also 1/2 moon shape. If you set the machine on its back, it's easier. Set the hook 1/2 into the other 1/2 of the hook driver to make a circle. Then put the hook cover on (machine still on its back) with the tabs for the twist locks pointed out. Needle gaurd to the top of the machine. Snap the twist locks in place and viola!

SOURCE: Hello, hope you can help
Did you change the needle to a new one out of a package? Also make sure that the needle is inserted to the top of its holder, press up hard when you change it. No luck? Maybe its knocked out of time...then its going to need to see a pro.

There is still thread binding in the bobbin area. My advise is the remove the bobbin shuttle, I believe there is still thread locking your machine up. This is not an easy task and whatever you do don't lose the small screws. I can talk you through this the best I can, but if you are not comfortable taking the the bobbin shuttle out, please contact a commercial sewing machine repair shop.
