Sewing machine manuals for older versions can be hard to locate. I did find a previous expert answer that has a manual that would be closest to this model. I attached the expert answer below. Hope this helps.

Thank you for your question on the manual for your sewing machine.
I believe that you sewing model number may be 148.12190 or something close to that.
The 5186 is the model number for the motor only.
The model number for the sewing machine is under the on a metal plate by the feed dog drop and you will have to lift the tilt the machine up and look under the sewing flat bed to see the number.
A lot of our sewing machines of that era had model numbers that started with 148. and 158. that used that motor model number.
If will please look for this type of formatted number I will be happy to help you.
Thank you for using Manage My Life.

My model # is in fact 148.12190. I got a crappy generic "instruction manual" off the internet, but i'd like to get a copy of the actual Sears Kenmore owner's manual. Can you help?
