TRACO TR9100 Window, Balance Channel

A quick learner from St Paul MN says:
I have (2) Traco TR9100 windows that need replacement of (4)balance channels (including the top & bottom ends) as well as (4) take-out clips. I hope the enclosed pdf files provide enough info for dimensions on the channel & ends.
The visible stamp appears to be 3736. [BTW...TR9100 is our best guess for the Traco model number. The window are single hung, side load.]
Thanks for your posted videos. They have been extremely helpful in getting me this far.

Thank you for posting! I believe this balance will have to be custom made, but I need some more information. First, can you tell me the length of the metal channel? Can you also show me one of your take-out clips? Thanks!
A quick learner from St Paul, MN says:
Paul, thanks for your review & response. The metal channel is 37 inches in length. I did exclude the top & bottom ends from that measurement. As for the take-out clips, I will forward a picture of those by tomorrow. Lastly, since the channel needs to be custom made, would it be helpful for me to send you the channel, end pieces & metal clips? If you recommend that step to ensure accuracy, I will get them shipped out in short order.

Paul - I have enclosed a picture of the take out clip w/ dimensions. I think it matches up perfectly with Swisco part# 16-002.

Yes, the 16-002, take out clip, looks like a match!
