Need Replacement Pivot Shoes

A handy person from Reading, Massachusetts says:
Good morning:

I have several American Craftsman double hung vinyl windows that have broken Pivot Shoes. They were installed by a contractor in 1999.
They seem to be marked with a Number 8501 which is probably the model number.
Can you please recommend what type of Pivot Shoes they are ?
Thank you

I'm afraid I couldn't match that number up to anything. Can we see a few pictures of the pivot shoes in question? Can you also tell me their width and thickness? Thank you!

Good afternoon:

I have attached a picture of the typical Pivot Shoe that needs to be replaced.

The dimensions are 1/2" thick, Overall Length is
2-1/8" and it is 1-1/4" wide.

I hope you can match this up with a part you stock.

Yours truly,

Thanks, Albert. I recommend out 15-046 pivot bar. The dimensions seem to match yours, as does the style. See what you think.
