Re: PUT THE CORRECTION TAPE ON CORRECTLY
First, remove the ribbon. Now look at the left side of the printhead. (thats the unit that moves back and forth) You will notice that, above the spindel that you put the correction tape on, and towards the platen, on the black plastic, there is a recessed flat place about the width of the correction tape with slight serrations in it. This is the guide for the corr. tape. There is one like this on the right side also.
Put the corr. tape on the spindle, keeping slight tension on the tape, give it a 1/2 turn so the underside (dull) side is facing to the left, and put it in the guide. Then you put the tape behind the two metal "fingers" that are sticking up in front of the printwheel, and then into the guide on the right side. Then put the other corr. tape spool on the post on the right side, and turn it until the red "leader" on the tape is past the middle of the printwheel. The dull side of the corr. tape is the side that does the corrections, so make sure that side is facing towards the platen. Make sure the ribbon goes behind the metal fingers also. The tape and the ribbon should both be between the fingers and the metal cardholder.

Well I go down to as far as 1980. Not sure of the difference (if there is one) and I couldn't see how many "prongs" were on that switch in the video but I did look up the switch that should be for your truck which is the same part number for the 78 and 80 so if that's the correct one that should be for your truck, I think it should be the same. (AC Delco number 19251626 ?). Hope this works for you.....
the easiest fix, is to take the machine to a repair shop that sells corr. tapes and ask them to install it. watch how it's done. look in the yellow pages. if you can't find a shop close, - - - first, take the ribbon off, then you put the supply side on the post on the left of the printhead. above the tape and right in front of the cardholder there is a guide for the tape that is black and has 2 fingers pointing to the left. turn the tape so that the part that is facing down as it comes off the spool is facing to the left, put he tape in the guide, between the two metal fingers and the card holder, then into the black guide on the right side and then put the take up spool on the post and turn to take up the slack. put the ribbon back on
it sounds like you were using a non-brother correction tape,one that was too sticky and consequently too "slow" and during the correction sequence the fingers of the daisy-wheel got entangled with the tape. Make sure that the correction tape is of a "non-sticky" nature and then take off the correction and printing tapes. That way you will see better how the daisy-wheel is fitted . I will assume that you have an instruction book to show how this is done. before fitting the daisy wheel examine the fingers to see that none are bent or crossed over each other. If this is the case it is better to buy another one. bring your typewriter to the shop if this is the case and they will possibly re-fit the wheel for you. good luck.....
This suggests that you are net setting up the DVD recorder up correctly, Check- are you connecting to the correct 'INPUT; port? Check have you select the correct chanell that points to this port. Carefully go the the book- vey can be very dense to read.
Check the way the correct tape is installed. I have seen people twist them around the guide backwards and the correction material is facing away from the paper. Also can you see the correction tape lifting up?
