Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I have done search after search on sewing machine motors, parts, service places, and this motor is virtually unknown.
Hi Joe - That's the case with some of the older parts. I have a Singer 66-1 from 1909, and I needed a new spring for the bobbin winder. Turns out my machine's was a very early design winder, with a much smaller spring. The very nice and helpful lady at Sew-Classic.com helped me look far and wide, but that spring is no where to be found. I had to buy a later bobbin winder from another 66-1 and replace that section of my winder so I could use it. So...as much as we would love to keep them all "original", sometimes for the sake of using them, we have to adapt. Que sera sera.
I grow some roses and DH grows delicious veggies. Thank you for the nice comment about my quilts. I love floral fabrics and bright colors.
I love treadling my 237,treadles very easily; it only does straight and zig zag stitches. I have FMQ with it and what a lovely job it does.

One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
Wow, playing catchup tonight! I've been oohhing and aahhing over the "new" machines, plus now I'm hungry for scones and maybe some tea with milk, especially after seeing the action footage of that cabinet like Charlee's Margie is in. Just beautiful.
Has anyone else noticed how well the ladies in Charlee's video links have matched their outfits to their machines? (Or how their hair doesn't move at all?) No more plastic hair clips and cartoon-character pajamas for me. It's going to be poufy black taffeta skirts and striking gold jewelry from now on when I sew so I too can match my machines.
I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!
