That little flappy catch circled looks like it should be able to be pressed in to allow the pin to move past it.

I've tried it but just can't get it to move enough - and I've nicked the paint on the wheel with my efforts .

But yes I do think that's, in theory, how it is supposed to come off maybe? I just can't get that pin to move backwards enough. Is it possible the pin is attached some other way - like as a clamp around the wheel shaft or something? I notice when I push the pin backwards, it moves more than just the pin - it moves a c-shaped piece of metal attached to the pin that curves around the wheel shaft, but I can't see it very well.

Any ideas for getting that pin to move? If I press on it with a screwdriver, then the screwdriver is in the way and prevents the catch from moving past it... but it's too small and difficult to move with anything else?

I am kind of at a loss without seeing it first hand. Mine just has a set Screw on the face of the Small chrome wheel. Perhaps slip a small dental mirror back there and something may present itself. There are a few people on here with a bit more experience than I have that could jump in.

Thanks so much - yeah, it's so tricky. I've never seen a machine without that little screw on the face of the chrome wheel! I have a video that shows it a little better if you are interested - https://photos.app.goo.gl/aiAdTxvvYw75G88z7

I newer saw a lock like this. It is intriguing, because you think that there must be a simple solution. I would try to push or pull on these pins one at a time and in many directions. I wish you good luck.

so true! I'm still looking for the solution - I'm sure when I get it apart I'll look back and it will have been such a simple thing!

My sister found this on FB marketplace, it was a true "barn find" with three others, free. It's missing a few parts, bobbin case, tensioner parts, maybe more, but the needle does move ever so slightly with the handwheel. The second picture is after wiping off the layer of dirt.

Very nice! I bet it’ll punch through saddle leather like a freight train when she’s back up and running. ❤️

Default Kenmore 158.19130

I would be gratefull, if somebody got a manual for a Kenmore 158.19130.

It seems to be one of the few zig zag free arm machines with needle threaded from left.

I couldn't find any free ones, but did find https://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machin...ion_Manual.htm and https://manualsoncd.com/product/kenm...uction-manual/

There may have been some on ebay, too!?
