There is a Service Manual for the Singer 20u range HERE

It is possible to download as part of a 30 day Trial on the Scribd site, however, you can just read it all online and perhaps take a screenshot of any particular references you need ....see below... you are particularly concerned with p4 onwards

I had to zoom out the page to take the screenshots, so they may be too small for you to read... the original link also has the capacity to enlarge the page for ease of use

Regards

Martyn
