Can't replace daisy wheel on Smith Corona 100 typewriter

In attempting to replace the daisy wheel (Smith-Corona 100), I find that the "slot" referred to in the instruction manual is obstructed by the brass-like spindle that is supposed to go into the center of the daisy wheel. It would seem that the ribbon deck mechanism should be movable or re-movable but I don't see anything that could change it's position, or a way to take it out. Can y ou tell me how to adjust the "slot"?

There should be a silver tab like button you can push down to change the position of the carrier; but my problem is getting the plastic piece to fit back in there correctly after I took it out. Tried to operate without it and it will not work.

How to change a daisy wheel and line it up


remove the ribbon to see better. Their is a latch right by the print wheel. Just pull gently toward you and the printwheel holder will pop open. Then lift the wheel out and install the new wheel, Then push the latch back towards the platen or big black roller. It should line up by itself when you turn the power back on.

I well like to know about the printer of typewriter 5A-1 Smith corona


All SL-500 series use a plastic Daisy-wheel activated by a solenoid. This strikes a carbon coated film which leaves an impression on the paper without breaking the fibers. This allows for character removal with a tack-less correction tape when struck by the same letter through the tape.

From the manual of Sr Smith Corona WordSmith 100:

Changing The Print Wheel
1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS
key.
2) You will see a lever on the right side of the carrier. Pull this lever toward you and
lift out the daisy wheel.
3) Place the daisy wheel into the slot with the characters facing the platen.
4) Push the lever back into position.
5) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.
