Now I fidgeted with it and all 4 parts have come off the bar and I can't figure
out how to put it all back together again. Any help?

Title of this thread isn't much help.  Anybody here have a clue  
what she is talking about?

I am also totally confused.  Yoda-Speak?

I don't know that machine, I have never heard of a "thread guide  
bar".  Perhaps OP is having problems with the tensioner?  If so,  
this might help:

Or, Cynthia may download a manual from International Sewing Machine  
Collectors Society (ISMACS):

http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_machine_company/manuals/singer-319k-sewing-machine-manual.pdf

Page 41 has an exploded diagram of the needle thread tension.  If,  
as I suspect, OP's issue is with re-assembling the tension, this may  
help.

Me Too!!!  :-)  You're welcome.

I especially liked the schematic of the tension unit, is appears to  
be very similar to my 401As, and I take them apart for cleaning  
occasionally.  Getting all the bits back together in the right order  
is... challenging.

 I've seen the sets of Singer  cams  at Thrift Stores  -
usually in  never-used  condition  -  sad to see the cams  
separated from the sewing machine ..  
 .. seldom see my Elna  cams  though ..  :-(

My machines all have built-in stitches, one just changes the two  
dials.  It does have some "Special" stitches available only with  
cams, but I almost never use them. I learned to sew on my mother's  
(unknown model) black-with-decals Singer.  There was a zig-zag  
attachment which whipped the fabric back-and-forth. ;-O

Her first zig-zag Singer, about 1950?, had cams for every zig-zag  
pattern, mounted on the front of the machine.  She even had her  
salesman contact Singer to create a cam for blind stitch hems,  
(--^---^---^---^-- imagine that rotated 90 degrees to the left)  
which was not one of the standard cams at that time. I wish I had  
not given it away to my aunt.after Mom died, it was a great machine.
