Default FW problem

If anyone can help me, I would GREATLY appreciate it. My husband took the tension dial off of my machine to make some adjustments and now the little wire that holds the thread adjustment is not going back into place after threading. It just wants to stay in one place.

If anyone has diagrams or photos of how it should be adjusted or reinstalled, I would greatly appreciate it. I am on a deadline to make a DWR quilt, and have to use my FW because my Janome is in the shop.

Please PM me if you need my personal email.

Ever so in your debt!!!

FYI: There is a small typo in that link that linda faye posted. It did not work for me at first but then I realized that the "n" in montgomery is missing. Thanks for that great link, linda. It is a great site and I am bookmarking it for sure.

OK, here's hoping this works :

This is in one of the featherweight user manuals pages 20 to 23
http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...ght-manual.pdf

page 20 and 21:

page 22 and 23:

I find typically that the spring hanging down to about 6 or 7 o'clock before it's put back on the machine works as a good starting point, then of course you coax it up over that rest that it usually sits on. That should give it pretty good rebound.
