Broken metal wire in ibm selectric ii


You have either a broken tilt tape or rotate tape. One controls the tilting of the element (ball) and the other controls the rotation of it. If either one is broken, you will need a qualified technician to replace it and make any adjustment necessary so it doesn't break again.

It may be as simple as replacing the element (ball). Remove it and look for broken ao badley worn teeth on the lower edge of the ball.

My ibm selectric ii type impression is messy and sometimes missing part of the letters. I have check for proper ribbon placement and cleaned the ball element, but the impressions are still dirty looking. ...


Left Rear chrome lever with ABCDE or - marks should be towards the typist and the red ball next to the typing ballo should be moved to a higher number. Messy printing is caused by paper not being held tight against platen(black roller)

IBM Selectric: Why does ball keep typing in the same spot when it gets to middle of the carridge? Space past that spot and it types fine. Hopefully, there is a simple fix. Thanks.


There are 2 black plastic dust covers that get bowed after the years and catch the carrier at the seam where they meet. They may just be loose so first try pushing them down. If that dosen't work take a sharp object and round off the top edge where they meet. If all fails gently remove them it will work fine without them.

Ibm selectric II typewriter prints a different letter than the one typed. the typing ball appears to be very sluggish.


By this time in thier life selectrics have become very gummed up which causes many many problems, you need a chemical cleaning and lubrication. It may be cheaper to buy an IBM Wheelwriter on EBAY.
