Hiya. I just read your solution for fixing an un-stuck key. As far as I can tell, it seemed fantastic. The problem is the "as far as I can tell" part. Could you explain it to a lay person? I really don't know anything about any of these parts. Would you mind taking some of your valuable time to explain to a dummy with phrases like "the cylindrical bar that goes under the hook thing in the middle on the underside?" I would really appreciate it if you wouldn't mind deigning to that.
It's a Remington Streamliner. Thanks so much if you can help.

Your typewriter may just need some lubrication. using a 3 in 1 house hold oil, add a few drops to each letter arm at the bottom where it connects.If possible,use a compressed air source to blow out the entire unit (wear saftey glasses of course), the lubricate the moving key areas. This is the best case fix, worst case would be parts need replacement.
If you know how to remove the right dust cover (black inside the T/W below the carrier) next to the R. side frame is the correction set up mech. spray some WD40 on the arms especially where they pivot, they should free up.
Turn the machine off and see if the carrier will move back and forth , if it dose turn it on allow for the POR, press and release the mar rel key, backspace to the desired L. mar and press the L. mar. key.
