metal sliding window roller

Hi,
There are no identifying numbers or company name. Help. I need four. This is for two very heavy 1965 apartment windows that slide to open.

Hello! This window roller assembly looks like it might have been custom made by the window manufacturer. I found one in our inventory that might work for you, but I'm not sure. See our 87-106. If you just need the wheel, not the housing, send us a photo of just the wheel with dimensions. We may be able to find something.

Hi,
This looks very close. The window is VERY HEAVY so I don't know if this plastic housing would support such weight.? How much weight does this part support?

No, you're right, our 87-106 won't support anything that heavy. We are currently trying to find a better match, but just in case we don't have any luck, would you be able to just replace the wheel, like Paul suggested?
