I also have replaced the plastic gear on my  257.  Now I don't know how to sink the belt so that the needle does not hit the bobbin holder.  I finally got it where the needle didn't hit anything,  but now it will not pick up the bobbin thread,  So I'm sure I still don't have it in sink,  can anyone help me?
