Replacement pivot bar and pivot shoe

A home owner from 07936 says:
After looking at several videos on your site I decided to resolve the problem that I have with my window on my own.

Attached are the pictures I took. In a window both the pivots bars are corroded and broke off the balance shoe. In other 2 windows the pivot bars are broken from one end each.

Pivot is 7.4 cm long, 0.7cm wide & 0.5cm in height

I don't know which balance shoe fits from your catalog. Also the Spiral Balance Cover is the length of the Spiral Balance and snaps into the window, I do now see and opening for the Balance Shoe to fit in.

The Spiral Balance seems to be fine

I would like to order replacement pivot bars and balance shoes and if any spiral. Also will I need that spiral charging tool?

You advice will be very help full. Any maintenance tips will also help me.

Pics attached.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for posting, Ron! Please take a look at our 15-046 pivot shoe and 26-040 pivot bar. Do you think these might work for you? Make sure to compare their dimensions to your own hardware.
