Question about Riccar R1570 Mechanical Sewing Machine
I recently replaced what the parts list describes as the Hook Drive Gear on my Riccar 600FA sewing machine, but I'm not able to figure out how to get it "re-aligned" so that the needle doesn't hit the shuttle race cover, shuttle race holder and/or the shuttle hook (whichever it may be hitting; appears to me to be the shuttle hook). The hook drive gear that I replaced was split completely with approximately a 1/16" gap and it seems that - like a motor driven machine - the "timing" is off but I cannot figure out where the adjustments need to be made in order to "re-align" it. Can you help?
When the needle has risen 2 mm from bottom dead center the point of the hook must be central to the needle and just above the eye.
----------- The hook should be at the top of its stroke inside the shuttle race. Loosen the set screw for the needle bar on the upper part of the machine, this is located on the needle bar bushing (the collar that the needle bar slides through when making a stitch). The needle bar should slide easily up and down. --------- Also for instructions with pictures and diagrams.You can obtain the manual.To get manual click this link directly:--- http://www.manualsoncd.com/productdetail-42-Featured.htm ------
Keep updated.This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Get a manual for the 555, it should be able to give you enough knowledge for your machine.
If not look on the website www. riccar.com for a similar model.
Find out what shank your machine is and you should be able to buy parts for it. I find ebay great for sewing machine parts.
THANK YOU FOR VISITING FIXYA
