9" arm aluminum operator replacement

A home owner from Pittsburgh says:
Hi-

This casement operator has a 9" arm and is metal. Seems too sturdy to be aluminum. We need the right hand replaced but depending on price may also do the left, to be safe, as it is also original. Not sure which to order due to the mount placement and limited space between the mount and the sill.

Thanks,
Autumn

Hey, Autumn. Your operator is a little old but we may be able to find something. Compare your arm length and mounting hole spacing with that of our 39-044 and 39-045. These could be the operators you are looking for.
A home owner from Pittsburgh says:
Dave- The mount holes on this operator are too short. Do you by chance have anything in which the mounts are about an inch wider?

A home owner from Pittsburgh says:
The mounting holes spacing on these models is too narrow. Is there by chance a similar model with holes spaced about an additional inch wider?

Hmmm... I've never seen an operator like this with a wider screw hole spacing like you describe. Installation hole center spacing on these older steel casement operators are all quite standard. Can you double check you hole centers?
A home owner from Pittsburgh says:
Hi - Hoping this goes to the top of the forum, even though I'm a little late getting back to the original post. Better late than never! In response to the above question, the mount holes are about 4" apart.

Thank you for getting back to us. The inside two holes for the 39-044 and 39-045 are 3-7/8". Could you get that to work somehow? I'm afraid these are the closest matches we have.
