Looks a lot like my Juki MO-104. To thread this thing remember this sequence.

Upper Looper, Lower Looper, then needle(s)

Open the front panel to get to your lower loopers and I think there should be a threading diagram inside on the door. Then always have test fabric that matches your project fabric. Sew a 3 " seam, check the seam.... adjust tension. If you want to get really good at seeing what's what in tension is doing thread each thread with a different color. To do your test stitches.

I've not found a manual that doesn't cost.

SOURCE: Threading an Empisal Overlocker - Model S4D

All sergers thread the same way and sergers have to be threaded in a certain order. I made a jingle out of it...
upper looper
lower looper
right needle

It would be best to have a tweezers handy to help with the thread and threading.

always be sure the lower looper thread goes over the top of the upper looper then out the back. I would be surprised if your thread guides are not color coded.
If you look at the top thread guides or the spools. First from left to right thread the 3rd spool, then the fourth spool. Then you thread the right needle (the second spool) then the left needle (1st spool.
The lower looper can be tricky because you have to thread it from the back of the looper to the front.
Pull the threads out the back from under the foot. Then go ahead and run it slow watching to see if it starts making a chain. It should. If not do it over again.
Good luck
