Since winter finally relented around here, I thought I would work on changing out the window operator. I drilled and chiseled out the rivets holding it in and then, like the Hehr instructions call for, I tried lifting it up to let the two tubes pop out. Except they wouldn't budge. So I tried sliding the operator sideways and that is when I discovered that the creation windows use a one piece tube with a metal key that fits through a slot in the tube and into the operator, whereas the Hehr windows use two separate tubes that have slots cut into each that then fits into a key built into the operator. The good news is (I think) that slot cut in the Creation tube will (hopefully) match the key in the Hehr operator. But I need to cut 1/4" or so out of the middle of the tube and then see if I can slide it into the slot. Since it's raining today and I need to run an extension cord out to the trailer to run my saw, I packed it in. When I proceed I will come back with another update and hopefully a success story.
