Default How to thread a Pfaff 31

I've just purchased a Pfaff 31 treadle sewing machine. I have a manual for a Pfaff 30/31 but the diagram showing how to thread it is for the "30". The 31 is different. Anyone have a diagram showing how to thread the Pfaff 31?

Thanks!
Tedd

Pfaff 31 is more like a Singer 15. I found a manual on youtube. It's in German, but the illustrations are quite good. I think the bobbin case threads the same on Pfaff 31 and 30.

Ted, They are both "clones" of a Singer 15.

The 30/31 does not have a feed dog drop while the 30 does. There is one other difference I cannot currently recall.
Hope this helps. If not, remember, spool, guide, tension, spring, thread takeup lever, guide, guide at needle, thread needle.

You probably have it all up and stitching by now, but I have to add there is a good view of the threading at around 15 seconds into the video. I'll try and link it to the right few seconds it appers. The manual isn't in German, it in Dutch (I should actually read something before I name a lanuage). There's a few differences in the old model 15 copies, but they tend to be minor.
