You must remove the entire left side of the cam line and get it in in time. Not for the novice.

Broken metal wire in ibm selectric ii


You have either a broken tilt tape or rotate tape. One controls the tilting of the element (ball) and the other controls the rotation of it. If either one is broken, you will need a qualified technician to replace it and make any adjustment necessary so it doesn't break again.

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 humming is probably the motor turning but the drive belt may be broken. You would need a qualified technician to replace the belt if necessary.

How do I replace the foam padding in my ibm selectric ii typewriter?


The foam was used for sound dampening. Over time, the foam falls apart and can cause problems inside the machine. If it is coming off, we usually remove it with a razor blade. New foam is not available any more. Hope that answers your question.

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..
