No, after setting all night I still get no characters. The wheel moves, but the strike (whatever you called it) does not make contact with the rubber things. Yes, you are right, the thing is old, and if I can find another free/cheap one, I will replace it, but with 4 teenagers and 1 income, well...anyway yard sale day is today, maybe....

I'm going to assume the wheels are aluminum and the hubs are steel. What's happens is a galvanic reaction when two different metals come in contact. Loosen the lug nuts and lift your vehicle on the jack then use a jack stand for safety sake. Remove the lugnuts and take a rubber mallet and strike the wheel from the inside in several places. If you don't have a rubber mallet, a 2-3 lb mallet will work as well. Keep striking the inside of the wheel all around the rim where the tire meets the wheel and it should come loose.
you mean that Red Star glue doesn't work. Call Night Owl Optics in El Paso, TX. See if they will sell you the rubber button covers. If not, contact me and I will find something to make you a button cover. stewbison

I found my own solution through trial and error. I set the dials to 12 00 and then move the dials to show just over 5 minuites to 12 ( 1155) the alarm melody start and chimes for a number ( in may case it was one.) then i moved the dial back to 1200 and then reset it again to 1155 or just over. Each time the alarm chimes an increasing number
I had the clock chime settings on the back of the clock to the middle setting (chimes on 24 hours)
I carried out this until the chime was right for the time i was working ( in my case it was 1730) so when it reached 5 chines I then set proper time and left it. The next chime was correct
Make sure that the ribbon is moving. If characters are piling up in the same spot on the ribbon you will get this problem. Easiest fix is to replace the ribbon. Many brand new ribbons can have a problem. If this dosent solve the problem it may be a mechanical problem with the mechanism that drives the ribbon, requiring a technician to repair.
This is a common problem with old supplies stored in a humid environment. Try leaving ribbon in an air conditioned environment for a couple of days to see if it helps. Otherwise buy a new sealed ribbon to try. Also push the hammer buy hand and see if it moves in and out freely and quickly. If not, the hammer needs some lubricant and or adjusting.
