    You might find a free one on line. I think I have posted some before. What machine is it - that 66?

    http://parts.singerco.com/IPsvcManuals/ you might look on there for something similar. Buried in there is a service manual for a Singer 401 so I bet you could find some info - and it's free. I didn't find anything on a 66 in there. Some of them may have enough info to get you through though.

    Oh Oh OH!!! (Raising Hand and Waving it!!!) I know the answer to the clutch washer question.

    There is only 2 ways it can go on. The little tabs in the middle should always curve outward. Then the washer will sit right in there. Put the clutch wheel on, loosen it and turn the handwheel to see if the needle bar moves. If it does, take off the clutch wheel, take the washer off and turn it 180 deg. Put it back on, and put the clutch wheel back on, loosen the clutch, turn the handwheel. It's a matter of finding the correct way.

    Janice,

    Here is a link to information on the Singer 15-91 which is the one with potted-motor. http://blog.sew-classic.com/2008/10/...ne-review.aspx

    For manual for Singer 15-91 scroll bottom of page.

    The Singer 15-90 has an external motor that can be removed for treadle use regardless of the handwheel not being a spoke wheel. It was Sharon, Purplefiend, who gave the heads up on that could be done when she posted a picture of her machines. So if you want a machine with motor, but maybe down the road want to treadle it then I say go with a Signer 15-90 or 89. Some of the Singer 15-88 and 89 might have a motor.

    Taken from the Sewclassic website:
    Other, similar Singer class 15 models:

    15-125- mechanically identical to the 15-91. Introduced in 1957, potted, gear driven motor, "updated, modern" design, green
    15-75- Just like the 15-125, except belt driven, external motor, black
    15-90 - solid hand wheel, external motor, belt drive- everything else is identical to the 15-91
    15-89 - Natural born hand crank, spoked handwheel, no motor, otherwise- just like the 15-90 and 15-91
    15-88 - spoked hand wheel, most often treadle operated, but sometimes equipped with an orignial Singer motor (see photos below)

    I call them the "Jeston" machines. Others call them the Rocketeer. Yes, for $25 go get it!

    Thanks, Monica. I'm sure this one is a 15-91...potted motor. It's really clean.

    Sue - I put my machine in a big turkey roasting pan (put 2 together) and filled it with lamp oil which is refined kerosene and let it soak for several days before scrubbing. It did not affect my decals.
