First remove the platen. There is a lever at each end of the platen push them down and remove the platen.
Then inside the case on both sides are levers, pull them towards you and remove the case. The levers are inside the case right against it.

The alignment of a couple of letters (i.e., "m") on by IBM Selectric II is askew. How can this be fixed?


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.

IBM selectric II carriage stuck in right margin


There is a thin metal ribbon in the back that has come off the wheel. It is a devel of a thing to get back on.

Remove the cover and watch ... you will see what I am talking about.

It may have come un-attached ... equally difficult to fix without the little thingie the typewirter mechanic uses.

good luck

How do I remove the ball from an ibm selectric typewriter?


At the top of the Selectric ball there is or should be a rectangle in the plastic. This is a lever. Bend the lever until it is standing at 90 degrees to the original position. Give a tug on the lever. The ball should lift right out.
