Question about Olivetti Linea 198 Typewriter
I can turn the machine on but it doesn't type. The motor is working and everything was working but we haven't used it in about 20 years. We were going to sell it but don't want to sell it and it not work. It has a special 17"carriage and 4 different font balls. I hope you can help me. Mel Capps
Sounds like the cog belt or timing belt from the motor to the mainshaft has broken and fallen off.
