A few thoughts in no particular order :
Isn't there a front-back platten adjustment affects print density
(particularly if the platten is too far back).
A new ribbon -- is it really NOS? -- could have dried out in storage
OK, if it's not those, then I'd check the print hammer carefully, In
particular, you want to check the spring tension, and strip down the
carriage and clean off any gummy lubricant. The hammer has to move freely
to give a good 'wack' to the sylinder.
