  • Page 110 Preparation of assembling the group as shown in Fig. 94. Place the two brake shoes No. A26/3/4 inside of the lower pulling drums No. C(A26/3/l), shown in Fig. 93. Next, place the brake spring No. A26/3/5 (see Fig. 93) between the two brake-shoes (using a thin-nosed pair of pliers to bend the spring ends together).
  • Page 111 Preassembling of group Fig. 95. Place the thin washer No. A26/3/9 (Fig. 96) above the already prepared group, as shown in Fig. 94, so that the small hole " A " of this washer is exactly above the hole " A " of assembly Fig. 94. Place the washer on assembly Fig.

If the thin washer No. A26/3/9 should have moved, push it (with a pin) into a direction so that the two aforementioned holes are just above each other.
  • Page 113 How to adjust the group of Fig. 95 in the mounting plate No. C(A26/1/1) for the automatic device (see Fig. 98). Make certain that the two holes " A " (Fig. 96) coincide and are visible in the window " B " (see Fig. 97) of the upper pulling drum No.
  • Page 114 C (A 26/i/i) Fig. The most important points to be watched when assembling this group are as follows: Make certain that the stud " L " of the "Automatic" plate (see Fig. 98) has entered the hole " A " indicated in Fig. 94. This hole is the one farthest away from the end of the spring No.
  • Page 115 Before hooking on the two springs Nos. A26/3/18 and A26/3/12 the assembled automatic device, check with a finger whether the movement regulating ring No. A26/3/15 moves freely in each direction. Before inserting the retaining ring No. 400090BZ (Fig. 99), which keeps the entire lower portion of the Automatic device on the mounting plate No.
  • Page 116 Fig. 101 To replace the mounting plates proceed as follows: Turn the design graduating knob " A " between " 3 and 4 ". Turn the flywheel toward you so that the eccentric " B " with the larger part is facing backward (in this position the head of the screw "...

  • Page 120 m—c Motor turns tightly. Motor shaft is bent due to: Motor having been dropped, V-belt having been forced over the motor pulley after mo tor was mounted in place on the machine. Handle motor carefully to prevent above defect. Have defective motor repaired.
  • Page 121 Oiling of motor: use only high grade sewing machine oil. Apply one or two drops of this oil into each bearing oil hole every two or three months. Do not use vegetable oils. Before oiling, clean lint from oil holes with a pin. Motor runs, but does not pull machine.
  • Page 122 Motor smokes or emits a burning smell. Motor is overloaded due to excessive belt tension. Adjust belt tension as advised above. Motor is not oiled at all; wrong lubricant has been used; motor is over oiled; oil on commentator. Have motor thoroughly clean ed as suggested above.
