Crank for a casement window installed in 1959

A home owner from Fayetteville, NC says:
Please help me identify/obtain a casement window crank assy. These windows were installed in 1959 & configured with horizontal panes. The window opens from the bottom of the pane & moves outward as the crank is turned. Please reference the 3 photos attached. Your help is appreciated. Thanks, Jim S.

Thanks for posting, Jim! Great photos. I think you should take a look at our 39-182 & 39-183 POW Awning Operators to start. Compare them to what you have. Do they match up? Let me know what you think!

Dave, thanks for your response with the illustrations & dimensions. I thought the 39-182 was the one needed but its not exact. The screw holes measure perfectly but the slotted flat bar doesn't have the "dip" as shown in the illustration. My bar bends at maybe a 45* angle & also seems to extend in the opposite direction from yours. If you have another please let me know. Thanks again. Jim

Thanks for getting back to us. Unfortunately, I don't know if your exact operator is made anymore. Our 39-182 & 39-183 are the closest matches that we have.

Regardless of what you use as a replacement, I recommend that you oil your window before any new hardware was installed, and make sure that it still swings.
