Singer Model 66 Feed Dog Adjustment?

The machine is set to 6 stitches per inch. I measured 8 per inch. Is an adjustment needed? The stitch is fine. Anyone know of a site that shows how to do this?

The feed dog adjustment is made by loosening the screws that hold the feed dog in place. Here's a link: CLICK HERE

As far as the stitches being too small, you'll have to just play with the machine until you get the right size.

Your problem could be caused by several conditions: too much presser foot pressure preventing the fabric from sliding freely over the throat plate; too little presser foot pressure not pressing the fabric sufficiently against the feed dog; trying to sew a sandwich too thick for the design of the machine. If you can rule out these possibilities, try adjusting the feed dog height as described in the manual that Dan provided above. If the feed dog is set too low, it will rise late and drop early and reduce the stitch length.
