Please, take this machine to an authorized technician before you attempt to set the timing on your own. An authorized technician will have a device to quickly tell you whether or not the timing is incorrect. If you change the timing yourself and that isn't your problem, you will spend far more money getting 2 problems fixed than the one original problem.
If the machine is making what I describe as a chattering sound, you may be able to clean the bobbin case and the ledge that it sets on and the problem will go away. This bobbin case should be operated with no lubrication. Some repairmen recommend " a drop of oil to make it run quieter". This generally makes it chatter louder. If there is any lube on the bottom of the black bobbin case, wipe it off and wipe the ledge that it rests on.
By the way, if the needle is hitting the raceway, you will be able to see the marks where it is hitting. In a Viking machine, this is normally caused by the "needle to hook clearance", not timing.

SOURCE: BOBBIN PROBLEM
Firstly check that you have the correct bobbin for your machine, there are many bobbins that will fit in the bobbin case and sew ok, but the hole in the centre is what matters. If you do not have an original try putting the bobbin on the winder spindle with a small piece of paper inside the centre of the bobbin so it is tight on the shaft.
If that does not work it usually means the winder rubber on the bottom of the cover is worn or stuck, this part often looks like a large O Ring.

Check to see if the thread coming off the spool is tangling on the spool pin or getting caught in the crack on the spool top where the thread originally comes off spool. Make sure the spool pin is pushed all the way to the right to secure your thread and then back it off slightly so the thread pulls evenly off the spool. Whenever your bobbin thread gets bunched it is usually something is wrong with the threading of the UPPER thread and vice versa. Let me know if this solves your problem.
