Question about IBM Correcting Selectric III Electric Typewriter
HAVE INSTALLED THE CORRECTION TAPE. IT WILL NOT CORRECT THE PRINT.
On the R. side of the carrier there is a gray lever, pull on it to release the tape. Put the full spool on the L. black supply spindle thru the black trianglar shaped lifter, to the rear of the black of the black finger, and put the take up spool on the R. spindle, turn to take up slack, close the gray lever.

SOURCE: correction tape on wheelwriter 3
The correction cassette snaps on the bottom of the ribbon. The two little "feet" on the cassette slide over the small tabs on the ribbon and the ribbon clips on.
Hope this helps

If you know how to remove the right dust cover (black inside the T/W below the carrier) next to the R. side frame is the correction set up mech. spray some WD40 on the arms especially where they pivot, they should free up.

Put in a multi part form and type if the carbons come out OK the the ribbon isn't lifting, Wiggle the big black gear on the R. side of the carrier back and forth. They do get tooth for tooth when they get old. If the print on the copies id bad or not there you need a print solenoid cap. We sell them for 20,00 including instructiond and shipping.

Testimonial: "I tried wiggling the gear, but it wouldn't budge. So, I pulled it out, toward the right. It popped back into place and started lifting the ribbon."
You may have a very old L/O or ribbon. The ribbon may be a non correctable the knob must be orange, yellow or violet. Not blue or red.
