replacement parts for tilt out window

A handy person from Los Angeles -Lake Arrowhead/Big Bear Area says:
Trying to fix a window with several problems.
1. Missing slide latch on right that allows window to tilt out. Slide is 2 inches and slot it is from is 7/8 inch . see picture.

2.Have broken window stoppers or "sash stops" I believe. 1 1/8 inch long unsure how wide.

3. Top window falls down with no resistance when lock is released. Will try to ID what I need when I am at the location of the window.

Hoping you can help me ID the right parts to order and help me fix this problem. Thanks.

Possible part for #1 is 26-119 or 26-234? #2 26-338?

It looks like you have an older version of a Mastic vinyl window. I actually serviced these just recently for a church in my area. Your internal tilt latches are no longer available, nor is the top actuator, but we may still be able to help. I recommend substituting with a surface mount tilt latch. These are different than what you have now in that they just screw on. We have a video tutorial that shows how we do this. We find it to be an easier solution for sashes like yours. Let me know what you think!

As for the vent lock, our 26-338 may work, but it would depend on how closely your dimensions match ours.
