Thank you for posting. I think the pivot bar resembles our 26-226, while the pivot shoe resembles our 15-175. Please carefully compare this hardware to your own and let me know how everything matches up.

Thank you for your help, I really appreciate it.

Are the metal cams universal?

No, metal cams are not universal. You will have to make sure to replace the pivot bar with something that matches.

I just noticed the pivot shoe has a some type of screw with no head on it stopping the shoe. Is it safe to assume I would need jamb spreaders?

I'm not sure what that headless screw could be, but I do know that if you do not have a cutout already made in your jamb then you will need the jamb spreaders. Check out the video below to see what I mean.
A quick learner says:
Here is the piece is was talking about and can't get out of way for the cut out at the top.

Ah, I see. That screw is meant to adjust the jamb. It shouldn't obstruct the way your pivot shoe moves at all. If you feel it is, maybe scrape away some of the plastic that appears to be sticking up.

You should also make sure your pivot shoe isn't still in the locked position. You can tell if it is by looking at the cam. If the cam slot is horizontal, then it's locked. If it's vertical, then it's unlocked. You can only move the shoe up and down if it's unlocked.

Finally, you could consider lubricating the track a bit to make it easier to move. Try out a silicone spray, or maybe our 75-077 slider slicker.
