I just disassembled and reassembled the tension assembly on a 15-90, and the finger on the stop washer was in opposite as indicated on the manual, before reassembly, and the dial would only turn from 0 to 6 or 7. After reassembly following the manual the dial turned 0-9, all the way. I think that's the difference.
The thread should move from the tension discs, including being hooked on the little fixed hook, then to the check spring then to the take up arm. Janey mentioned the difference once you get to the needle between the Singer 15 and the White 1514.

Congratulations on getting it sewing. That is a nice looking buttonhole.

Okay, I finally found an earlier post I did about threading through the tension discs and so on. It doesn't help that the two manuals use different terms for the same thing.

15-90 or 15-91."Hold the spool tightly (with the right hand) and pull the thread against the take-up spring 4 until it enters the retaining fork 3"

W1514 "into the check spring. then tug the thread to bring it past the hook (notch) "D"

If you hold the spool, so no more thread unwinds, then you have taut thread. After going into the discs from behind and down then bring thread to the front up into the "spring,." you can pull (tug) the thread and spring until it enters (past) the retaining fork (hook). The shape of the retaining fork/hook are such that the thread goes into it and out to the spring. The results are the same thread path as shown and described in my previous post.

Have fun.

Thanks Janey - appreciate the clarification.
I did watch a number of YouTube videos on threading 15-90/91s and some folks were doing it my way and others used the spring/thread/tug method. Like you mentioned, the end result was the same, haha. I think I was just hung up on the exact verbiage of the manual which didn't seem to make sense at the time.... thanks again for all the assistance!

Glad I could help. Kind of a funny coincidence, I was looking at CL today and found https://denver.craigslist.org/atq/d/...207509936.html
