What are the oiling recommendations for Consew 199R-1A?

All I have is a basic operation manual, and it does not any lubrication instructions, and I would like to know, where, and how often this machine should be lubed.
Thank you

Keith, onthe head of the machine there should be about 5 spots to oil.
1) near wheel on top of machine
2)near the top left hand side
3)) in the middle of those 2
4) open bobbin case , remove bobbin and oil around the rim of where the bobbin sits
5) about 1/2 way between needle and base of machine.
You should blow out machine with canned air and then oil once a month.

Cannot get tension balance correct

Try this. reomove thread and bobbin from machine.. Set thread tension to the middle number. Rethread machine carefully making sure the thread is thru the tension wheel. Replace bobbin making sure that thread is thru it's tensioner.
Rule of thumb. Loops on the bottom, problem is on the top. Loops on the top, problem is with the bobbin.
