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?

Did either of you find a solution to your problem? I have the same issue and need help.

I can answer most questions about sewing machine repair on the older ones.


Worked for Singer from 1962 to 1970 and then had my own sewing machine repair shop for another 15 years.
