Hello, Craig. I believe our S385-27 (2640 option) is a good match for the balance, but I'm not sure about the top sash guide. Could you show us one that has not been damaged?
A quick learner says:
Here's a pic of the guide...



Thanks,

Thanks! Start by looking at our 18-188. I think this may be a match, but just make sure the dimensions are the same.
A quick learner says:
So with that guide would I just drill a new hole? My exist ion is slotted and not mounted in the middle ?

I have checked all over and Tom's suggestion seems to be our closest. You will need to enlarge the hole to compensate for your offset. Would that be possible?
