Observe how the existing cartridge was installed, then lift it up while guiding the ribbon loop out of the guides. Pull a small loop of ribbon out of the new cartridge and position for installation. Hook the tape loop over the guides and seat the cartridge in position.

Loose ribbons, left one doesn't coil the right one's feed

Old Olivettis used a robbon spool that was driven by the turned uver tabs from the ribbon core. Universal replacement ribbons do not have metal cores. If you still have your old spools you can wind the new ribbon on them.

I have an Olivetti Lettera 32. I put a brand new ribbon in it and when I type, the letters are coming up too light on the paper. How do I fix this? What needs to be done?

First thing is to be sure the ribbon is feeding, watch while you type. if not you may have a universal spool ribbon that isn't quite that universal. Wind the ribbon onto your old spools.

Changing the ribbon

There are thumb screws that hold the ribbon. Hold the ribbon with one hand and turn the screw with the other.
