We could not come up with an exact match to your old style awning operator, unfortunately. However if you are up for the challenge, there is something you can try.

Take a look at the 39-252 operator, which was used on Crossly windows. This might be a good alternative. If you take a look at the photos on our store page, you'll see that it has an "L" shaped housing like most awning operators of this style do. You will need to cut this off to give it the straight body, like yours. 

Also take note that at the end of the link arm, it uses the 3/8" diameter 33-067 shoulder bolt along with the 33-207 nylon washer. Your shoulder bolt diameter is closer to 5/16". To fit the larger shoulder screw, you will need to drill a larger hole in the awning window linkage to accept the 33-067 shoulder screw. 

It's important to remember that if you alter your operator in this way, you will not be able to return it for a refund. Just something to keep in mind.
