Replacement Window Hardware

A handy person from Maryland says:
Please quote on furnishing a four (4) quantity of the following, delivered UPS ground to the Baltimore, Maryland area:

Replacement crank metal operator hardware for a wood Weathershield Awning Window.
The hardware is stamped and apparently manufactured by ‘Truth’.
Our current hardware is failing, with cranks becoming ineffective and perhaps 'stripped'.

Each window unit has been described as:

Weathershield Brand Awning Windows, identified by a Weathershield dealer as:

“SV 12 40-44-16 Roto w/4-9/16 JB Desert Tan" manufactured in 1987.

I have attached several photographs, and the following info to describe my unit:

The ‘guide bar’ measures 25.875 inches wide.

Each of the two ‘arms’ measure about 9.75 inches long.
(they are not scissor-type arms)

The mechanism opens the window about 9.75 inches.

The exposed window glass is about 39 inches wide.

Also, do these ‘operators’ come with the matching wood sill?

Thank you,

I have the same type of part, but the length of the part is only 21.5 inches long. What is my replacement part I need to order?
