WD40 fixes everything. Turn it upside down and follow the L - Key from the top. Then follow it to the striker key. I can't remember if they have individual return springs. Been a long time :>)

Did you ever get a resolution to the added space problem? I just purchased an old Smith-Corona Super Sterling and it is doing the exact same thing.

Hello, . didn't see if you'd gotten other answers to your question. Quick history, worked on those when they were new. If your hitting a letter and getting more than one space you have a sticky escapement pawl. What this is, is a small device that makes out of the escapement track when a letter is typed. A older machine like this may have more than one problem. If it's been sitting for a Long time little things may pop up once in a while. Quick temp.fix. with the typewriter in fRont of you, tip it up so it's sitting on the back and you can see all the key levers. When you see what looks like a saw blade on the part that moves (the carriage), center the carriage, with your eyes look into the very bottom, with machine still on its back and hit a few keys you should see some small parts moving out trying too. Lightly spray with a lubricating penetrating oil. This will loosen and lube, but this is temporary unless you want to pay for an overhaul. Lots of words, hope it helps if not let me know, maybe I can try to draw something up.

It could be a blown fuse, some models had a fuse right above where the power cord plugs into the machine. If you are going to take it our make sure the cord is unpluged from the wall outlet.

Remove the print wheel, look for bent spokes and be sure that the ribbon or correction tape are not tangled in it.
