I have an old Bakelite foot pedal for my Singer 301 that I ordered a new cord for. When I went to install the new cord, I stopped and thought I better look up the directions just in case I missed something - my first time at this.
I found directions on Jenny's Sew-Classic site. My old cord doesn't appear to have the sheaths around the cords where it splits into two - see example here:
In fact, there isn't much difference in circumference between my old and the new wires and if my old wires even have a sheath on them, it doesn't look like it - see attached pic.
What should I do? I understand the sheath is there to protect against overheating, but if I don't appear to have the sheaths to put onto my new cord...
Thanks for your assistance,
