There is no adjustment on Wheelwriters for thickness. Try pulling the release lever (top right) forward then putting the folder in then push the release lever back.

If you are asking about the print solenoid. Remove thr ribbon, below the ribbon just inside thr L. printer frame. It's about an inch & 1/2 in diam. and about 3/4 inch thick and silver.

Carriage wont respond


Perhaps the L. Mar. is set there. Turn it on wait for the por sequence to complete, touch the mar rel key, back space to the far left, press L. mar key. If that dosen't do it tou must have some lights flashing and/or beeping, What lights and how many beeps?

10 pt printwheel printing 12 pt spacing


Some type styles do have thinner print than others. The pitch is automaticly selected when you change printwheels. You can measure the pitch by printing 12 letter "i" and putting a ruler up to it.
12 spaces per inch is elite and 10 is pica.

Try a little light oil on the printer shaft. WD40 works well.

Character spacing


Joany, look for a function,usually on the left side of the keyboard on the IBM,that has the markings 10,12 and 15. And if my memory is correct,there will be a series of lamps which light up at the selected pitch. I would look for a key marked "pitch" and press that. Good luck.
