I think you are talking about the "check spring" and according to page 25 of https://www.supsew.com/wpfb-file/sin...1k1-k2-k3-pdf/ the part number would be 66774. I didn't find the 191 listed for as being a "guaranteed to fit" model, but it sure looks like the one that would be the right one.

If you are referring to the beehive spring, that part number would be 125314.

A lot of places to buy either part, but many will not list 191 as model that uses those numbers, but they are the numbers in the parts list.

Once again, no 100% guarantee but I think the tension assembly on the 191 is the same as on the 201 and 221 / 222...

Could you send me please that service manual, that's a model I have and need to repair.
Thanks in advance.

Welcome Gabrielfigueroa. Lianys has not been on since April of 2018. But my guess is that the manual she has can be found at https://www.manualslib.com/manual/52...oduct-191D%20- However, it appears to be an industrial machine rather than a domestic machine, like the opening poster's. Is yours an industrial machine?

This sounds so exciting! If that case it the original that in itself is a find. What makes me think it is is the mount for the pedal. I don't usually see that on replacement cases.

I have a 191J. My mother was the original owner, and I have the manual. I can certainly scan it and send it to you.

Oil Change
Hey i recently have come across a 191j and am planning on purchasing it to craft jeans. the machine looks taken care of but iím not sure how i can do oil changes on this machine. iím new to sewing. if anyone can help me out it would be appreciated

Oil change on a 191J
Congratulations on your upcoming purchase of 191J. That thing is a tank. Itís a wonderful machine and youíll enjoy using it tremendously in my opinion. I own a 201 (1941) and 191J (late 50s). The 191J was my motherís machine and Iím the second owner, but I have no clue as to the provenance of the 201 since it was purchased last year through FB Marketplace.

Iíve never ďchanged the oilĒ on any of my machines. I add sewing machine oil to the bobbin case every time I plan to sew for more than an hour, and I have the machine serviced once a year or so. If you consult the booklet your machine will come with, there should be a drawing with instructions informing you where you should add the sewing machine oil.

Good luck with your new purchase.

Thanks a lot for the help. iím quite new and wanted to create jeans. iím hoping this can do some work.
