There should be one or two set screws behind the bobbin shuttle, they could also be in the bobbin shuttle. You will loosen them st the timing and then retighten them. The Timing on a sewing machine is really straight forward, but that doesn't mean its not a pain in the but. When the needle is at the bottom of its travelthe hook on the shuttle should be coming around to meet the needle. As the needle starts back up it will create a loop in the thread for that hook to catch. Therefore the needle needs to start up before that hook is directlly in line with the needle. But the hook has to be above the eye of the neelde. So rotate it back and forth with no thread and watch to see when the hook passes the needle. It will probably take several attempts but you can do it. Do it in small movements. and only tighten the set screws enough to hold the shuttle in place to check it. Do not forget to retighten them.

Try on the singer site.
Just type in 2263 and click on search.
Three options appear on the next page. The manual can be downloaded by clicking on free download!
There seem to be free oiling instructions available, also by clicking free download!
This should be just what you need!

First make sure that the needle is fully up. Then you need to open the hinged front cover and unscrew the needle plate screws. Remove the bobbin. Brush out any lint now. Remove the bobbin case. Then snap the hook retaining arms outwards. Remove the hook cover and hook. Put no more than 2 drops of sewing machine oil on the the case (center right hand side). Then turn the hand wheel until the hook race is in the left position. Replace the hook and then the hook cover. Snap the hook retaining arms back into position. Replace the bobbin case and bobbin. Then replace the stitch plate.
Test the machine on a piece of waste fabric. If the hook keeps jamming, take the machine in for maintenance. The parts that may need to be replaced are the race or the shuttle hook. However without seeing the unit I do not know if there is not another problem. Some parts for the 2263 are available here: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/singer-2263-sewing-machine-parts.aspx .
Singer has a second manual available with the oiling instructions for the 2263 here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1213_oiling-2263.pdf . See the diagrams on this page for where things line up. The rest of the instruction manual is also online here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/1180_2263%28eng_spa_fre%29.pdf .
I hope this helps.

SOURCE: where to oil my singer 2263 ?
The 2263 only needs oil on the hook race (below the bobbin case). The complete cleaning procedure for this area is, with the needle fully up, remove the bobbin case and rotate the arms that hold the hook outwards. Remove the hook cover and the hook. Wipe the area under the hook cover and hook with a soft cloth. Put 1-2 drops of sewing machine oil just to the right of the center of this area. Rotate the hand wheel until the hook race is on the left side of the bobbin area. Then replace the hook and hook cover. Snap the arms back towards the center and insert the bobbin in the bobbin case.
With the bobbin out and the needle up, you should also unscrew the faceplate and wipe the feed dogs with your machine brush. (For best results, clean this before you oil. If you do not do this first, you may brush lint and bits of thread into the hook race and risk jamming this part.)

I hope this helps.
