replacement balance 2740

A quick learner from Scottsdale, AZ says:
I need to get two replacement balances for my AlenCo Window. I've attached four photos for your review. It has part 2740 stamped on it. The metal piece measures 28 inches. Do you have a replacement for this balance? Thanks,

Thanks for posting! Take a look at our 15-001 shoe. I think this looks pretty close to your existing shoe, but I'm not sure. What do you think? Does your shoe share its 1-1/8" depth?

If the 15-001 is the correct shoe, check out S395-28 with the option 2740.

Now that that's out of the way, let's look at that top sash guide. I think you might want to consider our 18-174. This looks very similar, but same with the balance shoe above, carefully compare its dimensions to your original hardware and see how they match up.

Yes, the 15-001 shoe is correct. The 18-174 is also correct. Will the 18-174 piece be pre assembled into the balance? My old ones fell apart before I could see how this piece fits with the balance. Thanks.

No, the 18-174 is a separate piece all together. It isn't attached to the balance. Rather, it screws onto your sash and acts as an end cap for either side of the top of the sash, right on the corners.
