Question about Singer 20U73
OK, this is a general timing procedure. Loosen the screws on the main shaft gear that goes to the hook drive gear and separate the gears. Next put the needle in the left position and bring the needle all the way down by turning the handwheel. As the needle comes up make the point of the hook enter the scarf of the needle (just above the needle eye)and hold it there while you put the gears back togeather and tighten the screws. This should put it close to being in time. To fine tune it you can loosen the needle bar screw (half way up the bar that holds the needle) and adjust theneedle so the hooks point is just above the needle eye. You may have to do this a few times in order to stop it from skipping stitches. Good luck. Rick
