broken pivot bar / pivot pin

A handy person from Toronto says:
I can't see a match on your website...
It's been so long since I removed these, I can't find the remainder of the "tail" ... I've drawn in where the tail was, but don't have the hole spacing, but it's not important. I'll just use new holes to attach.
I'll need 2 pair. Both upper and lower are broken off.

Look at our 26-164 tilt bars. Your drawing doesn't match the base that is mounted to sash, but do you think you can still use it? If not, let me know and I'll keep looking. If we could see an undamaged version of this tilt bar it would be a huge help.
A handy person from Toronto says:
Not close enough, I'm afraid.
I'd have to grind off too much to leave enough material for strength.
The broken off piece is just a continuation of the mounting (as in the picture it broke at a mounting screw).
In the meantime, while you're looking, I'll scan through the pivots to see if there's something close I could grind to duplicate.

Ah, I see. Is there any way we can see an undamaged version of this pivot bar? Could we also see the pivot shoe it fits into? That may help narrow down our options.
