Replacement Top Sash Guide

A handy person from Columbus, Ohio says:
Cannot find any manufacturer info for original aluminum double-paned windows in a house built in 1989. Have several windows with broken top sash guides, looking for replacements.

Specs as I measure them are; overall height: 15/16", top cap width: 13/16", top cap length: 1-1/16", bottom tang width: 1/2", screw holes are 3/8" from top.

Sash springs are embossed with number '2930'.

Any help is appreciated

This is an old Capitol window that has been discontinued for some time. The only replacement part we have for it is our 18-069. See what you think.
A quick learner from Columbus, Ohio says:
Paul - the top sash guide 18-069 looks like it will work. I went ahead and ordered a number of them to replace both the defective parts and have some as spares. Thanks for your help!
