You can see a sample of the printwheel on

I have a plastic on my print wheel do i remove it

Your description of plastic is not clear. If you mean the plastic case it comes in, then remove the printwheel from the case. Other than that the printwheel should be just the plastic fingers on a hub. You can see a sample on the website. Hope this helps.

Spray a little WD40 on the silver shaft that the carrier slides on.

First check check the pitch selector switch to be sure it is not in proportional spacing. if it isn't push down on it and see if it goes away, if is goes away the keyboard needs repaired.
