Is anyone using washers where the Hehr window lever attaches to the Sash mid frame support? The gap between the support and the lever hinge piece would easily support a washer or two. When I dismantled my windows they had no washers. I was considering aluminum washers or nylon washers.
As I begin re-assembling the windows after clean up, it makes me wonder if it might help to place washers on either side of the lever hinge piece(for lack of a better term). My mid frame supports were squished due to compression from the throughbolt. I rewidened them already so the mid frame support shows almost no compression.
Here is the lever arm as it is screwed to the mid frame support.
When I took apart the windows, the mid frame supports had been crimped from tightening the nut that attaches the lever to the mid frame support in the sash. I thought, maybe washers had long since vanished. I didn't like the look of the crimped support, it just seemed sloppy. So I widened them back to parallel. If you guys have no washers, then I guess, that's just what they did.
