Question about Lexmark Wheelwriter 3 Typewriter
I have an IBM Wheelwriter 3 and it won't print the letters when I type. I replaced the ribbon and that is not the problem. Everything seems to be in place as far as the ribbon, etc.

The selection motor bearings just right of the print solenoid get dry a little WD40 on the front and rear bearings usually takes care or this.

If everything was working befor the ribbon & L/O change Either the L/o is not properly attached to the ribbon or the ribbon and or L/O are old. Make some corrections then remove and look at the L/o, if the letters are near the center of the L/O the problem is the ribbon or L/o is old, if the print is on the top of the tape it is not properly attached to the ribbon or not coming out or the cassette properly.
If you have a fresh set or another T/W that works swap the ribbons and look at how they are attached.
