I've picked up this Imperial 66 (one with a larger carriage (A3?))—and I've cleaned out the segment, lubricated the carriage rails and fixed the ceased mainspring. I have two problems left:

One is that the ribbon advance mechanism is not being triggered, ie the mechanism itself is buttery smooth and there is no problem manually turning the spools. Except that when letters are pressed, the spool doesn't turn.

The second is that the bell doesn't get rung when the carriage gets near to the margins. I've set the lever to the correct position, and I can ring the bell with the latch manually, but the carriage doesn't do this.

Any help much appreciated
