Jeld Wen Tilt window balances

A home owner from Shelby, Michigan says:
I am looking to replace the balances for a old tilt out double-hung Jeld-Wen window. Overall window dimensions are approx 44 1/4" x 67", with each pane being approx 33 X 44 1/4". The balances were virtually identical to your Series 850 Block and tackle balances. The problem is that these balances, over the years, have broken into many smaller pieces and I no longer have an intact one to measure for length. Is there an easy way to determine what length balance I now require.

We can try to help, yes. Please give me the size of the visible glass for each sash that these balances support. I will need the height and width.
A home owner from Shelby, Michigan says:
Top Window glass size is 39-7/8" W x 30-1/2" H
Bottom Window glass size is 40-7/8" W x 31-3/8" H

Thank you! For the top sash, I recommend our S850-30 and for the bottom sash I recommend our S850-32. Make sure to confirm what size shoe you need, as well, and the color!
