I was trying to figure out how to time a Kenmore 158 today. I took the cover off of the shuttle gear and found all of this grease. Now to me, this is A LOT of grease. But the machine runs smoothly and, as a friend reminded me, I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL, so what the hell do I know?
This is what is underneath all of that goop. I tried to adjust the timing on this machine, It skips stitches and will not pick up the thread on the zig and sometimes on the zag. It does afairly nice straight stitch, but skips stitches. This is a problem since I was hoping to sell it. I will figure it out, or else it will be another machine to go with me to Ray White's class.
