Thank you so much! Now need to find the manual or how to thread it. I think I'm really close but the top thread underneath isn't tight.....

My hubby wants to call it Belle Aire....says it's the same color as his uncle's 57 Chevy
Actually there is a Belle Aire - it is a red machine. This MANUAL is the manual you need for that machine: http://www.ismacs.net/singer_sewing_...al-rotated.pdf
Muv has a video for a Singer 15: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2tiiZ51J7g
The clones should thread the needle right to left - some of the Singer 15s thread left to right but they are the same beast and the same manual. It is unlikely that you will find a specific manual for a clone.

The machine for that manual has the tension in the front, so it might not work.

That manual works for clones with front tensions - sorta.

Mark,

You are correct. Not sure why I didn't catch that.

Miriam,

Most class 15 (clones) machines thread from left to right. The Singer 19-88 thru -91 right to left.

Miriam,

Yup, the 15-30 threads left to right. Seems we giggled over this same thing in the past. GGG
