Move the red lever clockwise until it points to you, remove the ribbon, drop the new ribbon in, from the left side it goes to the left of the white slacker finger thru the two ribbon guides and back to the spool. Be sure to take up the slack by turning the knob in the direction of the arrows. NOTE: The red lever will not move if the grey correction is opened.

New ribbon but print is not dark. Also should I put in a new Printwheel II cartridge and if so how???

First put in a miltipart form, if the carbons are good it is a ribbon problem if not then the print solenoid cap is probably broken. We sell them with shipping and instructions for 20.00.

My IBM selectric II typewriter carriage stuck in right margin

Sounds like the return lever arm is not putting enough pressure on the return clutch, or the clutch is slipping. The exp key uses the same clutch but the pressure comes from your finger. Theres no way you can fix this yourself. Get an IBM mechanic.

IBM Correcting Selectric II; correction ribbon frozen in front of typing ribbon.

Move the grey lever on the R. side of the carrier to the R. and remove correction tape, try the machine, if it seems to work OK install a new correction tape.

Put new ribbon cartridge in ibm wheelwriter 3 not printing now

If the ribbon is lifting up you probably have a cracked print solenoid plunger cap. They are available but a little tricky to install.

IBM Selectric III - ribbon won't turn

Make sure the ribbon cartridge lever is closed and that the ribbon is on the outside of the shock wire (where the ribbon exits the left side of the cartridge)
