Be sure the corr. tape not a tacky kind, then type some thing and correct it watching the mechinism th see which one turns and in what direction. Install the empty spool on that hub thread the L/O thru the guides with dull side facing the paper and then the full on the supply hub. there may be two or more guides depending on the printer.

Hope this helps

Installed a corrective ribbon on a SL480 typewritter, now I can't get the ribbon back on.


Sounds like the correction tape is not installed properly. Try remving and reinstalling it again. Make sure the hammer solenoid assembly is latched to its home position. After installin the correction tape you can manually operate the lift arms to check the feeding of the tape. If you have a loca dealer you can probaly take your machine to them and they may install the tape for you at no charge.

Change font size on my bother ML 100


A typewritter is not like a computer. It is a mechanical device, that works by pressing an embossed letter in the daisy wheel through a inked tape into the paper.
The only way you can change either the font type or the font size is by buying and replacing the daisy wheel by another one with different font type/size letters.
To get to know more about your typewritter and accessories that might still be available to it, download Brother ML-100 Typewriter User's Manual
Click on "Go to View/Download Page" and in the new page click the "View/Download" button.
Look for page 16 (last page) of the manual for a list of cassette daisy wheels.

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..

Check the print wheel to see if any spokes are bent or missing, be sure that you have the proper correction tape (tack free) and that you are not in proportional space or have an international print wheel.
