Hi There,

Just confirming the 24-1231 is the correct replacement for the one pictured.

Good Morning,

From the picture I can see the stamp H29 12#31 8-77 - is that correct?

Are there any other stamps on your balance box?
A quick learner says:
That is correct, those are the only stamps I can see.

Yes, the 24-1231 is the correct replacement. Also note, it looks like you have wood right up to the balance box, this may be something that you will have to pry up to install the new balance.

Thank you for the response. You raise an interesting issue about the shape of the balance box. Apart from the addition of the angular tab on the one side, it looks like the screw holes have been moved as well. This is an issue since the top liner actually secures through one of the holes on the existing balancer. Any suggestion for managing that change?
