Here's how you set the timing od the Machine alright:
1. Take the side plate off, take the needle plate off.
2. Take the presser foot off, and put a new needle in the machine. 3. Make sure that the needle is in the lowest position and look at the needle bar for the two timing lines. Locate the top line.
4. Then, turn the handwheel toward you until the top line is where the bottom line was.
At this point, the tip of the hook should be directly in the scarf of the needle.
This should set the timing of the machine perfect....

Need to replace the gear in my singer sewing machine model 288

I can't get you the full instructions but I can offer some ideas which may help you. When you get into the machine (if the timing is still good) use a white or yellow grease pencil and make a mark across both gears as a reference point... then take a picture. When you start messing with gears it's really easy to get the machine horribly out of time. The reference point and picture will help you keep from getting it so far out of time.

I don't know if this will help you but here is a manual for your machine. I couldn't find an adjuster's manual.

I have a Singer Facilita that was bought in the late 70's where can I get an instruction manual

I think you can get a free manual from the Singer site for this machine.
Just type in the model number not the model name e.g 288 and click on search.
Choose the second option from the list by clicking on free download!
You will see that this manual is the same for a number of model numbers.
Hope it's the right one for you!
