My belt needs replacing. What is the procedure to get it off the shaft and  not
get everything out of time?

Absolutely not a job for an untrained person to tackle. You must remove the  
entire needle/presser bar assembly, the cam stack, cam follower post, motor,  
hand wheel and gear, then slide the main shaft to the left far enough to get  
the belt over. Then put it all back and re-time the entire machine. I am  
experienced (35 years) and it takes me several hours to do this job.
Most repair shops can not even handle it.

It showed up here, twice. Which is just fine, as your advice is  
always worth at least twice what we pay for it.  ;-)
