Hoping to restore my awning windows

A handy person from USA says:
I am hoping to restore some windows. I know little about window repair, to state the obvious, so I am hoping for your help. See attached photos 6 photos. 3 of which general photos which may help you identify the window.

I will need operators (See photo)

I will need bushings (slide bar guides) and rivets to attach bushing (See photo)

Vent locks (See photo)

Any diagrams, or instructions would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your time.

Hey there, Dick. Thanks for contacting us. I'll do my best to help you with this project. 

First, I believe you have a VE Anderson brand awning window. That helpfully narrows down the list of replacement hardware by quite a bit, though some parts aren't made anymore. Keep that in mind as we go forward. 

Starting with the vent hinges, the ones you show look like our 39-539 . Your operators would match our 39-259 and 39-258 . Look over our photos and dimensions to confirm, but I feel confident that these will match. 

As for the bushings, we unfortunately do not carry a replacement and I'm not sure if yours are even still available. Take a look at the various type of bushings and guides we carry to see if you could adapt any to work,  like our 33-206 , 36-077 , or 36-084 . If your bushings are not worn I highly recommend trying to reuse them. 

As for the rivets, what I have done for repairs was to use a pop rivet. The original manufacture used rivets which were installed at the factory when the window was being assembled, so they're a lot more difficult to deal with. I find that using a large pop rivet with a 3/16" diameter works well in repairing awning windows and is generally a whole lot easier.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you very much. I could not have done it without you. Thanks for being there.
P.S. I did some drilling and used 1/4 rivets.
