Thanks for posting. This is an older coil balance system that is no longer made. The good news is that we have a replacement option that we think has a good chance of working. It's no guarantee, but I think it's worth considering. 

See our 15-199 . This appears to be our best candidate. It's 17/32" thick by 1-1/4" wide and is compatible with our 1/2" thick Series 160 spring. It's also meant to be used with either our 15-150S , 15-150D , or 15-150T cover depending on how many springs are used in each side. It looks like you only have one spring per side, so 15-150S is what you'd want. 

It's important to note that the Series 160 doesn't screw to the 15-199 pivot shoe, but instead kind of hooks in with that tab. That's my biggest concern, but as long as the width and thickness of your shoe match ours, and as long as the thickness of the spring is the same, then it should be okay. 

The other concern is the pivot bar. The 15-199 is compatible with pivot bars with a "T" shaped tip like the 26-378 , or even something like the 26-241 . As long as your old pivot bar has a tip that resembles these then I think you'll be okay. 

Please review this hardware and let me know what you think.
