I don't have a 66 at the moment, the closest I have is a 99K, and a belt driven 201K with a spoked wheel. The bobbin winder is in theory the same, but not spot on your treadle.

It may be an 840, (842?) made from ca 1970 and probably a year or two into the 80s. It's probably close to an 840 at least, but it's missing the stitch pattern selection on top. There should be a...

Don't bother too much about the old type tensioner, you will soon get used to it. The easiest way about it is to do a drop test to get the bobbin tension right (bag of beans or rice), then adjust...
