Thanks for posting. For old wooden sashes like yours, we recommend an old stand-by balance system that has been used by wood window manufacturers since the 1940s: our Series 500 Non-Tilt Spiral Balance. You can use either our 17-007 or the 17-012 as the bottom bracket, depending on which most closely matches your old hardware. You also might want the 75-004 or 75-005 charging tool if you need one. See what you think.
