SOURCE: Needle thread getting caught in bobbin are on Brother Cs-100

I don't know if this is any help, but I would suggest taking it in to a repair store. So here is a way to find places that repair brothers machines. The place near me has done a great job both times I've gone in. Also they usually don't charge for labor, just parts. If they charge for labor it probably won't be much.

SOURCE: spring not connected behind bobbin casing

It is most likely the feed dog return spring. A cam lifts the feed dogs up and the spring pulls them back down. It hooks to the feed dogs bracket and goes straight down to the machine frame, there should be a small hook or post for it. You may be able to sew slowly without it attached.
good luck!

Sounds like you need to put a drop of clear sewing machine oil in the raceway of the hook. Then sew on some scrap material to soak up the excess oil.

I am looking for a metal bobbin holder for a Montgomery Ward UHT J1980 sewing machine.

If you have the original bobbin case that came with your machine, you can take it to a sewing repair shop and check if they can get a replacement. Otherwise, searching the internet:

Bobbin Case Hook And Race Wards Sewing Machine Model UHT J1980

Try taking your machine to a sewing repair shop and see if they can help. Perhaps they will try some bobbin cases that they have in stock.

How to replace the tension spring in a bobbin case?

There are two springs on the bobbin case of a rotary hook machine like the 180 and I suspect you're talking about the thread tension spring on the outside of the case - this is held on and the tension adjusted by a two very small screws. The other spring is the brake spring which is a complicated shape spring that sits in the bottom of the case and puts a slight amount of pressure on the bobbin itself. Assuming the thread tension spring has been recovered along with its two screws, it should be fairly self-evident how it fits back onto the bobbin case - the spring lays across the **** in the bobbin case, through which the thread is pulled, so that the tip of the spring with a small right-angle bend just sits down into the aperture where the thread comes out. Now, importantly, the two screws are different sizes ... the one with the smallest head holds the spring onto the bobbin case and is screwed-down firmly through the hole in the flat end of the spring. The larger screw adjusts the thread tesnsion and is screwed through the hole with the slight conical sides. Now the tension should be adjusted to 5g using a proper gauge, but failing that, insert a bobbin loaded with a thread such as Metrosene and thread the bobbin case up. hold the end of the thread so that the bobbin case hangs on the thread - it should not move/unreel itself. If it does, adjust the tension screw (the bigger one) a little bit at a time until it doesn't unwind. The approximately correct tension is obtained when the bobbin will only unreel when you **** the thread upwards gently. You can fine adjust the tension to get the correct balance by ensuring the top tension is set to normal (red line) and adjusting the bobbin tension until the stitch lays properly in the fabric - use different colours top and bottom to check this. Be aware that the bobbin thread tension varies quite alot with only a small rotation of the adjusting screw, so take it is small steps.
Hope this helps.

1957 Montgomery Ward Automatic Zig Zag machine...Tension is completely out of sink. Top thread cannot feed through the tension track properly and breaks when I try to sew. How can I readjust the setting. ...

Bobbin with right diameter with or without holes. The bobbin has to sit below the top of the bobbin case when it is inserted. Make sure it rotates counter clockwise when installed. If there is a peg in the center of the bobbin case then make sure the bobbin hole is big enough to rotate easily.

1. Top tension approximately four. Get a feel for this pull on your finger.
2. Now-Bobbin case has a small screw adjustment; on left probably. Adjust this to be set equally with the top tension set at four. To do this:
a. Feed thread through the spring area while the bobbin is installed.
b. Adjust pressure of screw until it is equal to the top tension set at four.
The machine can now be operated.
If the thread knot is under the fabric then tighten the top thread. Do the opposite adjustment if the knot is above the fabric. It should be in the center.
