Their website offers a select number of manuals at wards.com/custserv too.

Despite its English-sounding name, Universal sewing machines come from Japan, and were copies of American makes such as Singer and Brother. 

The postwar US government allowed such blatant patent infringements in order to boost the shattered Japanese economy. If you are missing the manual for your Univesal De Luxe, a US sewing machine manual of the … Read more

I think Montgomery Ward went out of business in 2001, unfortunately - this will make it much trickier to track down information on your particular sewing machine.
