Window crank operator

A home owner from Sarasota, FL says:
I purchased 39-194 but the off set on the terminal arm is in the wrong direction so it does not fit. I have attached photos of mine. Can you suggest a better match?

Thank you again for your patience. We have received the sample of your operator and I see now what the problem is. It appears your operators had been altered at some point, because the link arm does not appear to match the rest of the body.

That said, I think I have a solution. Our 39-259 VE Andersen crank appears to match your dimensions and link arm in all respects except one: the bottom two holes in the "L" shaped leg. The 39-259 does not have the same hole configuration. However, I believe you can drill it out in the appropriate place. Take a look at it and let me know what you think of this solution.
A quick learner says:
Dave, I think I am fine with drilling a new hole, that is no problem. I just ordered 3 of the 39-359 awning cranks and was hoping that you could through my old crank in the box as well.
Thank you for all your help!!
