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.

First this is old school after hitting the correction you must press the letter you are trying to correct. if you knew this and the correction tape is properly installed and lifts up you may have old supplies, If you want to talk yuo can call me.

Correction tape won't work. correction key works. read your comment on wd40, but won't wd40 gum up the works?


do not use WD40 an any typewriter. Are you pressing the letter you want lifted of after the correction key> Is the dull side of the lift off tape facing away from you?

Changing typewriter ribbon in the IBM Selectric


You haven't told what model of Selectric. If it is a selectric II or III, there is an orange lever on the carrier that you must pull to one side. The correction tape has a silver lever next to the take-up spool that you must pull outward.

Correcting IBM Selectric II Typewritter correcton ribbon won't engage


Selectric I and II type elements are identical (88 char) where Selectric III uses a different element (96 char). The 88 character element will have white lettering and the 96 character element will have yellow. Directly underneath the lift-up tab to remove the element will be a 3-digit number. That's the last 3 digits of the element's part number, which will be preceeded by 1167 for 88 character, or 1352 or 96 character. For example, if you have a '052" stamped on the element, and it's an 88 character style, the P/N will be 1167052.

The correcting mechanism is an intricate additional function of the backspace function. To test it/adjust it/or repair it requires the machine be hand-cycled using a hand cycle wheel which is screwed into the right hand side operational shaft. It's unlikely that an un-trained party would be successful repairing this..
