What do I need to replace my Pan Am Crank

A landlord from Cudjoe Key, FL says:
I have to replace several dozen cranks, and am unsure which is the correct Pan Am crank.
I've included several photos, if that is of use

Thanks for posting! It's hard to say without seeing how it connects to the track arm, but check out our 39-017 or maybe our 39-280. Could either of these work for you?
A quick learner from Cudjoe Key, FL says:
The 39-017 and 39-016 are very close, with 2 differences:

1. Height is 5 one-eighth (39-017 is 5 one-fourth)
2. Connector is 2 one-half (39-017 is 2 three-eighths)

The distance between holes on both top (one-half) and bottom (1 five-sixteenths) is spot on.

The eighth inch top to bottom might be workable, but I'm unsure if changing to a shorter connector will make closing the window more difficult.

Also, I assume they are L and R of the same model, correct

Thanks for getting back to us. We don't have anything that matches those dimensions exactly, but you may want to check out our 39-011, 39-350, or 39-277. Could you make any of these work?

As for the shorter link arm, it may mean that your windows won't be able to open as far.
