Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I meant to behave......but there were too many other options
So, Joe, what you are saying is that lowering that needle a little bit, like I suggested, changed things. Hmmm. You are welcome for the advice in post 37370.

Singer Model 27 Crinkle, Perplexed
Here is the link about my Singer 27 Crinkle. This machine is the only one of the herd/hoard that I have been unable to fix. She was frozen up solid in the upper innards. At least until yesterday. I will detail my fight with that machine as an update to the above thread. I am thinking that the 27 had the lower mounted bobbin winder and the 127 had the higher mounted one.
I did not ignore this suggestion, it was just one of many things I read that did not fully gel. I had the needles set to the same over all length, I had not thought about the eye placement. Had you gone into some detail as to why I should cheat the needle down, I might have tried it sooner. Since I had them the same length I did not want to risk making the needle too long without a good reason.
Seeing for myself the misaligned eyes gave me that reason.
