One thing to look out for is the rubber print hammer in front of the cylindrical print wheel, they go off with age and can destroy the print cylinder which are now very hard to obtain. The were available in many variants accorcing to the typeface used on the machine and the country.
Before using the ASR check the print hammer, the usual replacement is a short length of clear thick plastic hose pushed over the plate the original rubber one fitted to. There is a guy in California with most of the stock of Teletype spares.

@Max....Fossick - usually used in connection with prospecting, but more widely meaning "to have a root around looking for something". But you wouldn't use that in Australia - "root" means something not mentionable in a family column like this......
However said fossick may not be necessary. I think this will do what you want:
I've never bought anything off B&B but get their newsletter and their website (for a comms person) if quite tasty. I've never heard a bad word about them and I think they might even assist you to set it up with your ASR. Have a look.
