    Hi Starlover

    the belt goes into the same grove as the treadle belt on the wheel, you will need to check if the machine has a threaded hole on the pillar for the motor, it is the same one the handcranks bolt onto, some early sewing machines do not have a mounting point and may need, alternative mounting point thinking of.
    perhaps a bracket making to mount the motor higher then the flywheel, using motor against the treadle belt, the pitman rod from pedal to flywheel, would need disconnecting in that set up. think more modern industrial machines have motors under the table
    whatever you decide will be alright.

    Looks like a 66 to me too. One way to confirm and find out when it was manufactured, is to go to ISMACS http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_mach...-database.html and enter the serial number which is on the bed of the machine on the right hand side. Small metal plate.

    Thanks for this site! Mine was apparently from 1910!
    And thank you all for the advice on adding a motor, we'll get started on this soon. Looking forward to this project and being able to use the machine.
