The thread take up lever goes on first. A key land mark on this piece is the flat edge on the post for the set screw.

The 5 parts that were removed are shown in the next photo. The long bar at the bottom is the HAS and the four part at the top, from left to right are the stop motion flanged bushing, the feed cam & feed lifting eccentric, the bevel gear, and finally the needle bar crank.

I started with the upper bushing for the upright gear shaft. Notice that there is a mark at the top of the bushing that “points” toward the hole in the side of the bushing? This hole will face toward the back of the machine when it is properly placed into position. Also note the slightly flat side of the top of the bushing? This will face the side where the set screw holds the bushing in place.

I started reassembling Ms. Rusty today, but didn’t have time to put together a decent post. So I thought I just give you a little teaser by showing you a picture of all her parts laid out on my kitchen table.
Each of those little bags is worth at least one good post. So that means you can count on 17+ more blog posts before Ms. Rusty is even close to being complete.
I’ll try my best to get the next post up before Mother’s day. I just know you can’t wait to see how to install the drive shaft
