I have been working on a very late model C4 and it does not have the standard quadder that was on early C4's. The side lever from the main cam block does not move can you please give me any advice or information about it.

While we could all private message you, it might be more useful to:

See pictures of the quadding mechanism.

Know the machine serial number--as "later" is not really descriptive.  I don't think that Intertype changed the design of the mechanical quadder after 1950, but perhaps they did.  You also may have the autotabber mechanism, which was built upon the mechanical quadder.

The most likely source of jamming, however, is metal from a squirt getting into the rack/operating space of the quadder, inside of the vise(?) head and down into the operating racks therein.   Again, pictures.

Intertype DID make a "new and revised" Autospacer that was used on later "gray" model machines.  Had three F2s with them and they were a pain.  I believe that at the end of Intertype they were using Star quadders which tells yiu something about the "new and revised" Autospacer!

Laurie's still not solved his problem.

Anyone know if there's an instruction book for later-model Intertypes available online?

Here are 18 photos of pages from my 1962 Intertype manual related to the quadder. I don't know much about the Intertype quadder as I never worked on an Intertype until after I retired. You should be able to right click on the photo to copy it, after you have clicked on the thumb nail to display the large photo.

I have in my workshop 3 Intertype Machines 1 American and 2 English. Could I see some clear photos of the machine in Question

I have owned a large number of Intertypes from Models  'Bs' to the model machines including a Monarch (which had a Star Quadder) all my Quadders were the same.
