Ware right hand window crank, markings, Miami, FLA
Crank works, BUT It will not close.Remove handle, inside is a screw,theappn the inner workings of the "box".
Can I just purchase a replacment screw and not the whole crank hardware?

Thanks for posting. When you say "screw," do you mean the tiny little set screw at the base of the handle? If so, I'm afraid these are not available by themselves. You may be able to find something applicable at a local hardware store, however.

If you are referring to the gear bore, however, then this cannot be replaced. This only comes out when the gears of the operator itself are stripped out. You would need to replace the entire operator.
A quick learner from Charleston,WV says:
It was the gear bore, and even a seasoned retired navy machinist did not want to make this singular part...I did decide to purchase a whole mechanisim.
thank you.
