It is usually that the printwheel is in wrong. Make sure the pw does not have any bent "petals" on it making it bind.
After it snaps in and closes it should go to it home position. If not keep trying a couple of more times and it should seat in.

Changed print wheel (same type as previous) now typing letters incorrectly

Check the "Pitch" selector slide switch on the lhs of the keyboard... it should be on 10, 12 etc position to match the printwheel... NOT in the PS position.

I have an Olympia Standard elec typwriter. Does anyone know where I could find someone (NE London for pref) who could correctly install one of my replacement cartridges and correcting tapes. As it is,...

I think the reason why the tape is no longer rising up is due to the failure of the orange cog at the bottom of the carriage (just under the printer ribbon). This stops the carriage rising.

Can you inspect the cog and check it is intact? Also look at the bottom of the typewriter inside an look for sheared off organge teeth

Let me know if it's that issue and I might be able to give you a solution

Ribbon does not advance but wheel does turn when

You are in the overstrike ribbon mode. Code and Period, comma, or slash will get you out of that mode.

Letters typed are not letters printed. Wheel is lined up properly.

Check slide knob lower left of keyboard is set to 10, 12 or 15 and NOT ps.

Be sure the pitch selection is correct. If it is set to PS when using a 10,12 or 15 pitch wheel it will select incorrect letters.

Look for a key with a coloured symbol,ie,indicating "keyboard 1",or something similar. Hold the code key down and at the same time press your selected key. Order should be restored. If not,look up an Olympia dealer and they will help you over the phone. One thing for sure ,you have inadvertely selected a 2nd or 3rd keyboard setting to accommodate an other daisy-wheel/language. Good luck!
