Do I need to replace the entire mechanism or is there a way to fix the crank? See video...

I looked on net, had a article. They have a abundance of "Jalousie window cranks on the menus. It might be cheaper to just replace. I had small ones on my roof vent that I replaced.

Thank you! I will check that out.

Lowe's, and True Value Hardware stock some repair parts for windows and there,s sources online as well

I believe window operator is the terminology. You might google that and go to images and find a match. Then click on that image and open that page. All purely speculation on my part. Or post a pic and I'll check my shelf...
P.s....sheesh, ok...i just clicked the link...hehe..oops. I'll go look..
Randall is right, its the jalousie type operator. I dont have the center drive. I have the WCM 882c in left and right.
Here it is

Hi David, 

I may need to purchase 4 of the jalousie type operators from you if you still have them. I think 2 of each left and right....which is which? I will look and let you know which I need. 

ill look and see what i have...

Thank you

Thank you all! Now I know what it's called and where to go to get it. I wish everything was this easy. Lol

Well that"s good you resolved it Fred, and hopefully it works now. I posted a video of a "Scotty" being restored and it show how extensive a repair can be. Good Luck!
