Trying to replace a Anderson casement window crank assembly #2520 RH. Was wondering if any of your #39-028E cranks would work,even if I had to modify the window with new track.I included a picture of the old crank, the arm is about 10" long. Does the length of the arm determine how much the window opens? Any reply would be helpful.

You have an older Andersen Casement operator from back the 60's. I have personally worked on many Andersen windows, but not one as old as yours. I think we can still help, though.
It looks like yours has a metal bearing at the end. The one you picked out has a nylon bearing and it will not fit into your track. I'm wondering if you could retro-fit something like our 39-366 operator, instead. You could also try to use a newer version Andersen operator like our 39-095 and try to retro-fit that to your window, instead. You would also need new handles, either our 39-114L (for the 39-366) or the 39-286 (for the 38-095).
These are the best solutions I can come up with. I cannot guarantee that they will work, and they will require some handy work, but you just may be able to use them to fix your window.

Hi - just wanted to follow-up with the original home owner from Waterbury, CT. What did you end up having success with? I am looking to replace an identical part.
