  Muchas Gracias to all who have offered advice and suggestions
about the teletype. The Problem, alas, is that the print carriage
has thrown one of the little nylon sliders that ride on the code
rails as it travels... I have taken the unit down to major
subassemblies but there is no sign of the slider. Damn. It is of
course the slider on codebar 5.

  I narrowed this down by observing the punch, which is getting the
correct codes. Why 'return' doesn't work is a further mystery, but
it will have to wait until I can scrounge up a parts machine, or a
working one in which case this one will become the parts donor. It
is the parity machine with the forms feed unit and tractor feed
sprockets, which is nice for computer use.

  Thanks again all... now to get to this 11/44 sysgen...
