Window crank parts

A landlord from New Hope, MN says:
It is a getty crank. Its a very old window. 9inch arm and chain like mechanism attatched to crank that jams after you open the window more the 3-4 inches. When it jams, the person on the outside (of the house) has to push the window while the person inside the house cranks the handle.

We do carry the gear for this old Getty chain type operator, but not the complete operator. I don't believe it is still available. Your operator kind of reminds me of our 39-379. I'm not sure if you could use that as a replacement, but it would likely require extensive adaptation of your window. Most manufactures today use a type of operator like the 39-083. Take a look and see if you can adapt that to your window, as well. You may want the help of a local professional.
