Thanks for posting! I'm afraid some of your post got cut off, so I'm not sure what your question is. Are you looking for a replacement of the operator pictured? If so, start by looking at our 39-387 and 39-388 and see how well they match up.

Thank you, I did look at 39-387 and 39-388 but the measurements won't work for me. I have have included a new pic with better measurements. Please let me know if you have anything that would fit. Thank you.

I think I see what you mean. You have an old Wright operator. What Wright did was use the basic operator body and gear arm and then attach different sized link arms. If this wasn't difficult to keep up with by itself, they also happened to go out of business.

Fortunately, I have a few suggestions. What you could do is to purchase something like our 39-316 operator, which has a 5" link arm. That's a little closer to the yours, though it does not come with the 39-105 detach clip. You will need to order that separately.

I know it's a little short, but you can do two things to make up for that. First move over the sash bracket on the window so it is in the correct position. You could also simply take the link arm off your old operator and install it on the 39-316 using the 62-014.

I hope I did not confuse you too much. Let me know if you have any questions!
