Loosened the fly wheel to wind a bobbin she wound the bobbin wonderful. threaded the machine tightened the fly wheel back up and now she only takes a stitch every now and then the flywheel just purrs. do i have something together wrong at the flywheel, i cant get it any tighter. is the belt not tight enough. I dont know what to do

    Sounds to me that the belt isn't tight. Is it by chance off the wheel? Someone will be able to help you of that I am sure. Good luck.

    Is the bobbin loaded correctly? Since that is what you changed that would be my first suspect. Is it threaded correctly? Check everything to make sure.

    I think the washer between the hand wheel and the clutch release knob was 180* out. I have this happen to me all of the time, I take one apart put it back together and there is a 50% chance at me getting it wrong and 9 times out of 10 I get it wrong. So what happens is the hand wheel will not tighten all the way and it will slip on the machine. Or it will be too tight and when you release the clutch it will still have the handwheel engaged.
