I recently inherited an old Montgomery Ward model UHT J 1932. I don't have the guide... I think it needs oiled and cleaned (at least)... and the tension is all a mess.

Anyone have one and could give me a few clues? Last machine I used was years ago and much newer. I'd really like to use this, I could do with a machine.

Resources for DIY Sewing Machine Repair & Maintenance

You should probably get a manual ro at least look for a threading diagram that is similar to your machine.

Thanks for responding! I actually went to that site yesterday (and your blog too, oddly enough) looking for info on this machine. I know its a dino... but it works, the insides have barely any wear on them and it will do everything I need it to do.

I've already requested the addition of the threading guide and oiling guide on that site. It looks a bit like the 1414. The actual guide will have to wait till I have spare cash.

Only issue with it I can see is some surface rust on the bottom bits. It wipes off easy though.
