Sewing Machine Question (elgin model 2468)

Not sure where to put this exactly, so if it needs to be moved then so be it.

My friend lent me a sewing machine to work on his costume, but I am having problems with it. Has anyone here used and elgin sewing machine model 2468? Something is wrong with the thread and I don't know if its threaded wrong or if the bobbin tension is to much/weak. When I try to sew with it one of the threads (hard to tell if it is top or bottom) does not go through the fabric, it just lays on top with the loops of the other thread lightly looped over it. (I hope that made any sort of sense) I do not have the manual for this machine, nor can I find any threading diagrams on the internet.

So basicly my question is that if anyone uses one, I need some help threading and/or finding the thing to change the bobbin tension. Unless I'm off about what is wrong with it.

Thanks for any help
