I just obtained a Sewmor 414 today for 20 bucks. The color sucked me in. I see it is a 66 clone. It’s missing the slide plate and the tension twirls freely. Is the spring in the tension the same as a 66? I did unscrew it and it appears Singer exact in formation. Also the motor smoke when I depressed the pedal . More cleanup and now to learns about servicing a motor.

Very similar to the Morse. The motor likely needs a good careful cleaning. Good luck on your rescue project
