Metal Industries Coil Balance Replacement

A home owner from Mount Laurel, NJ says:
This is from a Metal Industries window installed 16 years ago.
Based on using the calculator I believe it should be an 11 pound coil balance. Also have similar from a slightly smaller window which I believe is 9 pounds. No numbers or markings. Any help appreciated.

Thanks for contacting us. Based on your pictures, I would recommend our 15-180 pivot shoe and Series 190 coil springs. Just match up the stamp on your spring to those shown on the Series 190 store page.
A home owner from Mount Laurel, NJ says:
Don't see any numbers stamped on what I have. Where would they be if there?

I can actually sort of see a number in your pictures, but it is hard for me to make out. It is on the spring near the screw that attaches it to the pivot shoe.

Paul,

Now I see it!! It's an 8. That is all there is. I guess I need to know which part that correlates to.

I work in Collingswood, can I come to you to get the parts I need or is it only by mail order?

Thanks,

Bob

Oh, perfect. In that case I recommend our S190-840.

I'm afraid we don't have a local store, but you can place your order directly on our site.

Sounds good. I have one other broken coil to remove from a different window that is probably a different weight. Once that is done I can order.

Thanks.
