Bottom of yarn tension unit showing bend in the base and proper insertion into machine (with bend going away from front of machine).

Front guide arm, showing point of attachment to rod and yarn tension wheel.

Placement of front guide arm (front guide arm pointing towards front of machine).

Proper insertion of take up spring into tension unit (notch facing back, snaps into holder).

Standard knitting carriage (K Carriage) top and underside. The tension wheel is on 5, which is considered NORMAL setting. All cam buttons are in the off (out) position. The change knob (upper right corner) is set to the N-L. position.

Up and down positions of row counter tripper. Needs to be in down position to engage the row counter.

Up and down positions of knit-leader tripper. Needs to be in up position for basic knitting.

Placement of K-carriage onto rail: Carriage must be slightly tilted to slide on properly. The carriage should then lay flat on the knitting bed and move along the rail smoothly.

Top and underside of sinker plate assembly.

Weaving pattern levers need to be set to the N. (down) position for basic knitting.

Yarn feeder level needs to be switched to the left to thread the yarn through and then flipped to the right to close.

Sinker plate assembly attaches to K-carriage by sliding onto the two large screws at the top of the K-carriage. The screws then get tightened down. The whole assembly should then slide smoothly along the knitting track.

The extension rails are placed at the two ends of the knitting bed to prevent the K-carriage from sliding off. The carriage slides onto them to clear the knitting bed when necessary.

Finally, thread the yarn through the carriage and flip the yarn feeder lever to the right to close the gate.
