Awning window lever extension

A home owner from USA says:
I have a window in my kitchen with an existing awning window lever operator (see attached photos). The handle for the lever operator will interfere with the new faucet that I will be placing directly in front of the window. As such I thought it would be a good idea to change it to a roto gear window crank so that the handle/faucet don't hit each other.

I'm wondering if you have something similar to the 39-015 roto gear crank in (i.e. one that is 23" instead of 25.5")? I've attached the dimensions for the existing window, which we are trying to re-use for the already predrilled holes/screws.

Any other suggestions would be helpful! I'm not sure if we can leave the brackets in place and buy a new operator box, is that even possible?

Thank you kindly!

I don't think moving the sash brackets are that big of a deal. We do have the shorter 39-083 operator, but It only has a single sash pull. If you have the room I would rather have you use the 39-015.

Also take note that the installation holes and cut out in the window sill will need to be altered for the new operator. A carpenter could help you with that. You might also want to order either the 39-205 fold down handle or the "T" shaped 39-102.
