Today’s post cover’s the reinstallation of the Thread Take-up Lever Assembly and the Needle Bar Link. These parts attach to the end of the horizontal arm shaft that we installed in the previous post. Fortunately, these are pretty easy to put back on.
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.
This post is placed in the arm of the machine in the hole just above and to the left of the needle bar crank (see photo below).
Next time I think I’ll tackle the upright arm shaft.
