Thanks for posting. Please see our Series 395 and let me know how well this matches your original balance.

Thanks! Looks like the correct one. Does it look like I need any specific option?

Based on your stamp of 14-3, I think our 1430 should work, but you can always weigh your sash to confirm.
A quick learner says:
The sash weighs 9lbs, I ordered th 1420, will this be ok?

Thanks

I'm glad you weighed your sash! That just reaffirms my belief that it's always better to check. You never know what was going through the original installers' heads. Yes, for a 9 pound sash, 1420 is a great choice.
