Tension spring part

A handy person from Brooklyn, NY says:
I don't see bold numbers like 531 in your example but I found this number. 11600-17 Does that help?

Thanks for posting. Unfortunately, that stamp doesn't tell us what you have. The stamps we need to see might be on the sides or back of your balance box. Can you remove it and let me know?
A handy person from Brooklyn, NY says:
Another try; there wasn't anything on the back or sides. I did find stampings on the edge; they put the staple through some of the numbers.
I read 1031 1 ? 8or9 43 8 90

Great! That should be it. I think 1031 is the one we want. Take a look at our 24-1033. This can replace balance boxes with that stamp.

You guys are the best!
You saved me $200!!
My wife had called a window repairman that wanted $200 to repair the window. I'm sure he wouldn't have done both sides. I doubt that his price included parts.

I was done in an hour, and that included washing the window. That video was a great help.

Thanks again!
