Hey Mike,
It sounds like you solved the problem.Curious though about the bulb seal.Mine are flattened on the 65'too.I was going to use a D style gasket I got from Inland as it supposedly seals better.Now I am wondering if I use both?
Main reason for my post is to inquire as to how you got the top screw out as mine is pretty rusted.Give me the details.Thanks,Steve

Hi Steve,
Yes, I had to remove the screw to remove the window (I needed to replace the glass). Mine simply screwed right out. After bending up the end of the drip cap after drilling out the end rivet, the window just slid right out.

I'm not sure if your window is the same style, can you send a pic of the window in question open and closed? The bulb seal for this window is more an air seal than water seal. The window frame has about a one inch inner lip which provides a great barrier for water intrusion. I couldn't put another seal on my window even If I wanted. With the new bulb seal I need help from the outside to close it.
