Re: IBM Selectric II
Depends what spring it is a very common spring to break is on the motor speed torgue spring. This is just off the motor, and the machine needs it on to give you good carriage return, etc. Dust covers snap in place under the rotate cords. Be very careful these cords come off real easy and if they do, bye bye TW. Fronts snap under a front bar or rail and back snaps in a hook type unit. Very hard to tell over the internet. If you can't get reply back with a fax number or something and I can draw a picture and Fax.

Yes, all the keys are snap on. Use a spring hook on top and bottom of the key and wiggle (carefully) upwards to remove. (If you don't have spring hooks, then hefty paper clips will do. Create a 90 degree or better bend on the end of the clip)
It is under the right dust shield. The one that has the yellow lable.Once you get it off turn on the t.w. The hub just to the right of the center frame has a large torque spring with a small spring about an inch long that hooks on the end of that large spring, the small one has a hook on the end. If its missing or broken thats the problem. It also could need the spring that the shoe presses against cleaned. squirt some alchohol on it while its turning. get it between the white plastic shoe and the spring that rotates on the shaft.

The return clutch torque limiter is off or broken. If you take the right dust cover off it is on the turning hub around the middle of the typewriter. a small spring about 1.25 inches long with a hook on the end. I have been fixing these for 35 years. good luck. Lawrence
