    Joe,

    The cam stack is replaced just as removed. No indexing just drop into place , you might need to rock it back and forth slightly to seat it.

    The cam stack has what appears to be a timing mark on the top. But it was covered with gunk and I didn't see it until I cleaned it off.
    It might not be a timing mark at all but I'm getting it back together after a thorough cleaning and this is holding me back.

    there is a thread on the board that says quilts made using vintage machines. Check it all out. You will find a wealth of knowledge on machines and on quilting. Everyone is like a big family here. I just love it.

    Miriam,
    Thanks. I got it downloaded, went to save it and found I already had it. I just didn't recognize it do to the file name. So I renamed it.

    Cathy,
    So it doesn't matter what way the cam stack goes? I've had them in and out - no big deal - I didn't know if there was a marking or timing on them or not. I just kind of figured my own way of putting in just the way they come out - but I've wondered about what was right and how do you know about timing them.

    Miriam,

    Taking the cam-stack out doesn't change the timing on this series.

    Well, Cathy, you must be right nothing has flubbed up on one yet here. Taking it out does make it a bit easier to clean up that stitch selectors I guess.

    there is actually a sticky thread of quilt photos. Most of us use vintage machines, varying from all-the-time to occasionally. And we start getting selective- the 201 for piecing, the 15 for FMQ, etc.

    It sort of reminds me of my New Home T No 3, but different too. The shape of the slide plates and needle plate are the same, but the tension is not on top like most of the New Homes. The decals are really purrrrty. Yes, it does look like a 28 too? Actually more like a 28 to me than a New Home, but it is full sized isn't it?

    Glenn,

    I'm a little late to the party. This is one beautiful machine. According the Needlebar it is a New Home model "P". The picture that they have is listed a 1917 version. They said it was imported into England during or after WW1 when German machines weren't being imported.
