In replacing correction tape (no problem, there) I loosened the daisy wheel. I cannot now get it back on so that letters and keys correspondm (e.g., I hit, say, the "r" key and type a "g"). Where on the "Courier 10" wheel is the notch or whatever to align with...well, with what?

All SL-500 series use a plastic Daisy-wheel activated by a solenoid. This strikes a carbon coated film which leaves an impression on the paper without breaking the fibers. This allows for character removal with a tack-less correction tape when struck by the same letter through the tape.
Changing The Print Wheel
1) Move the print carrier to the center of the platen using the SPACE or BS
2) You will see a lever on the right side of the carrier. Pull this lever toward you and
lift out the daisy wheel.
3) Place the daisy wheel into the slot with the characters facing the platen.
4) Push the lever back into position.
5) Press the CODE + = (SETTING) key.
Remove the printwheel check for bent spokes, look for debris in that area, try it without the correction tape, check that the correction tape is dry not tacky, also check to see if the pitch selection isn't in PS proportional space. If allis good the homing pawl spring is probably broken, you need a tech.
Power up the machine, the "V" groove of the hammer should be center aligned with the "." petal If not
1 remove the ribbon bracket
2 loosen screw of the daisy wheel (element) motor it has locktite on it , slide the motor up or down in its slot until the hammer and petal are aligned. If you cannot correct it this waydue to a lack of travel it becomes a more complicated job may need a typewriter repair man.
