Lift top cover up.
Move the carrier to center of machine.
On the right hand side of the carrier there is a red lever. slide it to the left.
( it will lift ribbon arm's up & move the ribbon drive mecanisem out of the way.)
you now can lift the ribbon cassett out of the machine,
put the new ribbon in the machine.
there is a wire with a white plastic roller around it on the left side of carrier. make sure the ribbon goes on the out side of the that wire.
put the ribbon throuugh the lift arms
turn the knob on ribbon till the colored led is in to the ribbon cassett + a few turns of the black ribbon is around the spool.
slip the red lever to the right.
close cover & try typing
hope it works for you

The ribbon may be in the stencil position. Just below the ribbon is a gray slide with a botton on the left side of it, press the button if it is in stencil it will snap to the right.

Wheel writer II will not print - replaced with new ribbon


There's a small cap on the solenoid that pushes the hammer, this cap wears out and the solenoid cannot push anymore. Cheap part, always wears out, new ones are teflon and last lots longer.

The plastic printer solenoid cap is probably broken, it is available but a little tricky to install.

Check to see if the ribbon is lifting up, if not there is a black gear on the right side of the printer wiggle it back and forth until it will move. If it is lifting put a multi part form a nd see if it prints on the copies if not the plastic on the print solinoid is probably broken they are available but a bit trigky to install.

There are two different ribbons for selectric III T/W's. One has the ribbon guides as part of the cassette the other the guides are part of the machine.
Be sure the ribbon and L/Oare installed properly and the ribbon is winding on the take up spool properly (counter clock wise) and if the guides are in the machine id to the left if thr white slacker finger just L. of the ribbon also be sure the L/O tape is behind the black seperation finger and the ribbon is in front of it (just to the rt. of the opening in the plastic card holder).
