The tricky part of getting one of these apart is this ribbon cable that needs to be un-plugged in the right front of the machine. Don't just yank the cover off - lift the top shell just a bit and keep track of how far this cable stretches, it's not far. unsnap the keyboard and move it out of the way to access the plug and push inward at the edge of the white plug to release the cable.

I am a scoundrel without a cause, and my swank outshines the sun.

I am a casual Typewriter Hunter residing in the sweltering deserts of Arizona with a wife, three cats and about 50 typewriters. My main hunting ground is thrift stores, and I rarely pay more than $10 for a machine. My collection consists mainly of portables with cases, and they stay in the cases unless I am actively using it (usually more than one at a time). I do, however keep a handful of interesting Selectrics, including a Composer and a couple of large Nakajima Electronics to use as daisywheel printers for my vintage laptop collection.
