Hello, Leon. The balance looks like our Series 140 and the pivot bar looks like our 26-405. Please review this hardware and see if you agree.

Hi Paul,

It is not 26-405 pivot bar. It has T-type end (not rounded). Sorry it was not clear from the picture. Please see attached drawing.
Paul I need your help. Please advice what is my option?

Thank you,

The 26-405 works with our Series 140. If you think you can use the Series 140 balance as a replacement, then as long as the hole spacing of the 26-405 is the same as your old pivot bar it will fit inside of it. The round end locks into the pivot.

However, if the Series 140 cannot work as a replacement balance, let me know! We may need more information about your balance before we can recommend anything else.
