1982 IBM Correcting Selectric III Serial # 11-4556005 1982 IBM Correcting Selectric III typewriter, Serial # 11-4556005 Jack B's 1982 IBM Correcting Selectric III typewriter. 2015-03-27 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Jack B: 1982 IBM Correcting Selectric III Serial # 11-4556005 Massive. Scored this colossal typer on craigslist for $20. It does not return all the way when the "Return" key is pressed, but I have no idea how to fix it.

(update)

It has been months, and I still don't even know where to start in fixing this.. it just keeps jamming the return in the same spots and I have to press the key 8 times before it returns all the way... any suggestions?

(update)

It's finally out of my hair!
