As for the drawband pressure, I'm not sure how to measure that. but it is attached to the proper areas.

I press the left release lever to move the carriage and it doesn't seem to have any pressure, it does have pressure when I use the carriage return leaver. I pressed to the left on the right knob and it doesn't move, I press the left knob to the right and it does move to the right. I got ahold of the rod connecting to the spindles and it does rotate the ribbons.

I managed to get the shift back down, it appeared to be jammed. As for the ribbons, the gear in the cup thing appears to be in line with the spring drum, the ribbon release is engaged and when I use the carriage release and move it back and forth the drum and the ribbon does move with the carriage, but the carriage is not advancing when typing. I'm not exactly sure why, as the drum has spring to it and the draw band is intact. I have a thought that it may have missing springs somewhere? It is a machine that appears to have sat for some time.

So I was checking the ribbon area you mentioned and I found this, I'm not sure but it seems like something is missing here. The hook thing is free swinging, it looks like there should be something attached to it. I can turn the post attached to the ribbon post manually but it's still not turning on its own...would it have something to do with what I'm looking at here?

Awesome! I'll try those things. You are a great help. You've given me quite a bit to tinker with. Thank you! I definitely will post pictures of any further issues.

I am a fairly new typewriter owner and I have recently acquired, what I think maybe a 1914-1915, double pane Royal model 10. Serial # X196998. The carriage on it is not advancing. The carriage moves sluggishly side to side and the ribbons aren't wrapping as they should. I have cleaned the carriage rack and the draw band is intact, I have tightened the tension screw and is still not advancing. In the process of trying to tighten the tension screw, I had hit the shift lock key to have easier access to the screw, now my shift lock is stuck.  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
