replacement 4 bar hinges

A contractor from Winchester, KY says:
Could you please help identify possible replacement hinges? This is from what we think are Atrium casement windows installed in approximately 1990.

Thank you!

Thank you for posting in our discussion board, Mike. Before we can recommend an applicable replacement hinge, I just have a few questions for you.

First, what is the thickness of the track? Second, do you know if this hinge requires a shim when installed in your window? If so, what is the thickness of that shim? Finally, can you confirm the length of the hinge? You have yours listed as 12-3/16". Usually the lengths of these hinges ends on the inch. Let me know!
A contractor from Winchester, KY says:
Tom, thanks for the quick response! To answer your questions:

1) the track is approx 3/16" "thick", or "tall"

2) no shim is required when installed

3) length of the metal portion of track is 11 13/16"
