Welcome to the site. Many of the MW machines were made by the Happy sewing machine company out of Japan. I'll watch this thread for a good answer. I have a convoluted way of finding manuals. If no one replies with a better answer, I'll share mine.

Sorry, my MW is a URR385 I don't know it it would help. I love the machine and it's been going strong for over 60 years, was my mothers.

Janey is a whiz at finding stuff on the internet. I'm kind of waiting around for her to post.

Meanwhile, I'll share how I've found manuals in the past. As many sewing machine companies, post WWII, sold their machines to many different sellers. For instance, you might find the same machine labeled Kenmore (sold by Sears), White (sold by independent dealers) and Gritzner (mostly sold in Europe). Most department stores had machines with their name on them (called a badged machine). So, you search (by hand, not Google) by the drawing of the machine on sites that sell multiple manuals for download. I put the machine in front of me or a photo of the machine and go searching.

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button. As shown at Standard Sewing Machine Co. Paragon

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of quilt block ID?

Another way to post pictures can be found at 2021/2022, 2.5 Birthday Swap
And how to use an ipad to post pictures can be found at Uploading photos

Or simply - Make sure pictures are smaller than 2MB
Click on red "Reply" button
Click on the paper clip icon
Click browse - choose picture/s. (only 5 allowed per post)
Once they show up as being loaded, Scroll over to the right side and click on "Upload"
After the pictures show up as being attached, you can close that window and go back to the screen to finish posting your post.

Some additional notes -
The photos generally need to be reduced to less than 2MB in size. I have heard of people sending an email to themselves as it will ask if you want to reduce the size.

I have an android phone and when I tried to reply on Quilting Board while in mobile view None of the options for adding pictures was available. However, there is an option down at the bottom left of the page that is for Full Site when I tapped on "Full Site" It then looked like the way it looks on my lap top. So it would have the Red Reply and the Go Advanced options.

Do Not Preview post.

I have found that Montgomery Wards or Signature sewing machine manuals are extremely hard to find. There used to be a few sites that had a lot of different manuals, but are no longer around. (sewusa & sewingmachinemanual for good reason and tias @ relics didn't have anyone take over for health reasons)
I did find a couple on manualslib.com but not for this machine, Maybe this might be close? https://www.manualslib.com/manual/17...03.html#manual I also found a threading diagram for a 1979 at https://web.archive.org/web/20160405...ng_Diagram.htm
Then there is this one for 1980B that looks like would be close on scribd, but it is a subscription service so don't know how it works https://www.scribd.com/document/6377...-1980-B-Manual
