1950s jalousie windows rehab

A home owner from New Iberia says:
I recently purchase a midcentury modern home with 4 large floor to ceiling jalousie windows and I need help to find instructions to replace operators and perform general cleaning and rehab. 2 of the windows work, but need new weather stripping, one has a broken operator and the other will not open at all. I need advice on getting the jambed window open as well as replacing the operators. the original are yale ogron type, but don't know if the "univeral operator will work.
the windows are an architectural element I want to keep, but need direction to rehab instructions, etc.

Good afternoon! Thank you for your patience in this matter. I think I recognize this operator. It is a very old part and I don't think it's even been made in years. That said, you may want to check out our 39-182 & 39-183 POW Awning Operators and see if you could perhaps use these as substitutes. Let me know what you think.
