Replacement channel balance and window parts

A handy person from North Florida says:
Good afternoon:

I have a 30" channel balance with 18.2 lb sash, 1/2 inch channel. The plastic bracket that goes into the top of each side of the sash (which catches the channel balance) also needs to be replaced. The window bracket is 7/8 of an inch across the top. I have attached a few pics of the shows on each end of the channel balance. Any help in figuring out which channel balance and show brackets I need are greatly appreciated. The top bracket on the channel balance is 1.25 inches tall.

I have attached pics to try to help as well. Thank you!

For the balance, start by looking at our Series 385 channel balance. This looks good to me, but see if you agree. As for the damaged top sash guide, consider our 18-166. I recommend carefully comparing your measurements to ours to confirm both parts are a match.

Thank you, Paul! Those parts look like exactly what I needed. I went ahead and ordered enough for one window so that I can give it a try. If these all match up, I'll be ordering ones for the rest of the windows in my home. I appreciate your expertise and help!
