Question about Sewing Machines
Hi I have a singer 427 which I use for sewing upholstery/vinyl. A gear wheel broke so I replaced this and also replaced the motor belt which was looking loose. Since then the timing seems to be out and the needle sometimes catches the plate underneath. I have broken 2 or 3 needles and the cotton that is threaded through the needle often snaps when it goes underneath to the bobbin.
Thanks for any help

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....

readjust the hook to just grab the thread loop as the needle raises it will take a few tries to get the exact setting for the hook (maybe you will see a mark on the hook shaft to show you where the hook's set screw was located before it slipped)

There are manuals avilable online to purchase for the singer machines, SOrry I was not able to locate a site that has them for free.
