This appears to be our S390-31 Channel Balance. However, we will need the number printed on the balance in order to determine the correct balance Series.

Can you please give us any letters and/or numbers printed on the balance?

Well, we need to figure out what stamp number you'll need. Can you remove the window sash and place it on scale and give us the sash weight in lbs?

Can you confirm the length of the channel portion of the balance only?

It appears you'll need the S390-29 Channel Balance with the 2830 stamp option.
