    Does ANYBODY else have a really old Sears Kenmore model 158.13041

    This is the machine I bought from Ebay (could have swore it came with a book but I cannot find one anywhere for it so apparently not) and I have been oiling it regularly, but doing it without a manual.....I don't have the diagram that tells me where to oil it... I have just been finding the holes and dropping oil in them and I got online today trying to find a diagram for it with no luck...

    I thought if somebody else had the same machine I could maybe get a copy of just the page out of your manual that shows where to oil it...??

    My other older Kenmore is a little different on the top part as it has the design cam attachment in it so some of the oil spots are the same but not all of them.

    I'm sure I am getting it oiled where its most important but am afraid I might be missing some parts and it worries me! LOL

    I would appreciate it greatly if there is someone out there who can help me! TIA

    My old Kenmore is a 158.19470 1976-1977 No cams, no frills LOL
    According to this machines manual, you also take the bottom cover off and oil there in 5 places. After opening the face cover plate it is showing 7 places there, also at the base of where you set the bobbin to wind it, and the usual places from the top of the machine. If I can get the scanner hooked up tonight I will see if it will scan, as the diagrams are a real funky green color, (gotta love the 70's avocado green).
