Most selectrics at this time are suffering from many gummy parts.
All of these problems are probably repairable with a good chemical cleaning and lube.

The alignment of a couple of letters (i.e., "m") on by IBM Selectric II is askew. How can this be fixed?


It may be as simple as replacing the element (ball). Remove it and look for broken ao badley worn teeth on the lower edge of the ball.

The lubricants dryp over the years. Try spraying everything with WD40 you can't hurt it.

The machine is probably gummy. If you know how to remove the case do so, get some WD40 and spray everything that moves espesially the stuff on the outside of the rt. side frame.

IBM Selectric II


Yes. From not being used in so long It needs a chemical cleaning or washout and lubrication. It may need a part or two also. Everything is gummed up. I have been repairing selectrics for 35 years. Lawrence
