I found an old Olivetti Lettera 31 that belonged to my dad and want to use it. It is very clean and everything works, but why is there no number One Key? Do I have to substitute the I key?

SOURCE: The Caps Lock/Shift key jammed on my Olivetti Lettera 32

Sounds like the shift key lock spring is broken or missing. Look ont he key and hook it up or find a tiny spring to install.

SOURCE: Olivetti Lettera 22 skipping spaces

Thje problem with this machine is that you need to use a fast pecking motion when typing. If you press and linger on the keys for too long this will cause an extra space.

I need instruction manual how to fix 1969 Vintage Olivetti Typewriters. Also in this model I am missing some bearing somewhere. I need to fix that. Thank you.


Hi.

Regarding the manual, the Olivetti will probably belong to the lettera series. Here a manual: tntf. O, Olivetti & C, S. p. A.

Regarding the bearing, service manual in PDF for devices sold before the 1980s are not available, and replacement parts are very difficult to find. The only way to restore a vintage typewriter is usually by finding the same model on the second-hand market for spares or repair.

Olivetti Lettera 32 typewriter - a few problems!


Problem 1 means the the spring on the springdrum has unwound. It is a job winding it and hooking the carriage cord back up. Might want to have a pro do this one.
Prob 2..some lettera 32's had preset tabs every 10 spaces. Also you can type by a tab..it is not a margin..it just stops the carriage when they are set.

We would like to find an ink roller for an olivetti Lettera 35 typewritter


The lettera takes a DIN spool ribbon, very hard to find you may be able to find a universal spool that will work. A General Ribbon T4 or you can wrap a ribbon onto your spools.
