Have you removed the old blade yet?
The blade lock my be broken off -- it should be a button on top of the motor.
This saw has left hand threads -- turn clockwise to loosen the bolt/nut.
If you can't find the blade lock, lower the saw onto a piece of wood llike a 2x4 to keep the blade from turning.

First off, unplug the saw. No need to remove the guard, though you may have to loosen the cover over the lock nut to access it on some saws.
Look for an arbor lock button on the back side of the blade housing or motor, to lock the blade in place.
Hold that down and use a wrench to loosen the nut holding the blade on.
If you don't have an arbor lock, you'll have to wedge a 1x 4 or 2x4 under the blade and hold pressure on the handle to keep it from spinning while you loosen the lock nut. Once it's loose, spin it off and remove the washer and blade, replace and retighten the nut.
Should be pretty straightforward, as long as you have no power to the machine and lock the blade from turning, not too much can go wrong.
If you want to find an online manual with instructions for your saw, please try Sears online support site at www.managemyhome.com.

Testimonial: "wow-- thanks a million! exactly what i was looking for. "
I found a copy by going to the Sears Parts Direct website, then select the link on the right that says "View Manual". It will take you to the Manage My Home website, where you will find a button for "View Manual".
I would upload to Fixya, but I cannot get the Manual upload link to work.

You should have 4 bolts holding the trunnion on to the table, just loosen these bolts up a little, tap the trunnion with a hammer, the right way, put a straightedge on the blade fully extended and measure across the table to a dado slot, front and rear, tap it till it is exact, tighten bolts and check again. This should do it. You can check your fence the same way. hope this helps.
