I even have the original sales slip from 1982. What I do not have is a manual. I found and downloaded a free manual online, and the one page that I need--how to navigate the tension area--is so blurred, that I cannot read it.

I am hoping that someone here might have some experience with this machine and can offer me some assistance. I'm hoping she will turn out to be a workhorse and not a finicky filly. BTW she has got to weigh close to 50 pounds!!
I did a Google search and came up with this link: https://www.vikingmanuals.com/Viking...on_Manuals.htm
You can download a manual from this site; maybe the thread diagram will be clearer.

Unfortunately, there is not a manual for this machine and it costs $9.99 for most of the pdf files.
