Replacement casement window operator?

A handy person from Massachusetts says:

I am looking for a replacement Window Dyad crank operator with a 5" hole center and a 4.5" arm. I ordered SWISCO product 39-090 which was much too large to close. I am returning them now. But before I reorder I was hoping for some confirmation on these two questions.
1. will SWISCO p/n 39-188 work? (see attached picture of existing operator)
2. I am questioning the operator left or right is correct. My existing operator is definitely a right, by definition, and has worked but from the crank location (see window photo) should a left operator?

Thanks in advance for your help

Thanks for posting, Carmen. What you have looks closer to our 39-118 than it does to our 39-090. I think that the 39-188 would be our closest match.

It's hard to identify what the left or right side is, however. It depends on the part; some say that the left side is when the window opens to the left, while others say that its what position the operator takes. It is arbitrary from part to part, and so we try to keep things general. The best way to find the correct part number for your operator is to compare it to the images we have on our site.
