I got a Adam for almost free at a garage sale. Been cleaning it up, but looking closer at the printer, the string/line that moves the print head back and forth is not wrapped around the motor spindle. It is not broken, the ends of the string are connected to the motor spindle, but not wrapped around it. No tension. The string is off the larger wheels at either side of the printer.  I have removed the top cover to get better access. 

How do I re-string the spindle correctly?

Milli Hicks posted a video on the Coleco Adam Facebook Group and you can search for it there if he doesn't reply here.

I am pretty clueless how to use FB. I think I found it, but there were only a few videos about 6-15 seconds in length. I'm sure it is not that simple a task.
