1974 Amerigo window problem

I purchased a 1974 amerigo FG-16. All the window pushouts are gone, so I have no idea what they look like. I'd like to make some. Can anybody get me a drawing with measurements and a pic of them. I have no idea what they look like or their length, width, etc. Thanks

Here are a couple of pics, hopefully they help some.

Also check this thread where I posted my repair for some of my missing latches. amerigo windows

Unfortunately the latches are a weak point on these windows. I had priced modern replacement windows for my Amerigo but @ $500.00+ each I figured I could live with these.

BTW the pics are of 2 windows that are out of their frames sitting side by side while renovations are underway.

Is this the window part

It says this company purchase the remaining stock of Creation Inc. Is the 9 1/2 inch part in the middle of the page the Amerigo push out hardware?

It looks similar but where it attaches to the window frame is different.

Is there anything left of your latches? The straight arms are pretty easy to make, it's the part that is attached to the frame that's tougher to make & secure.

Nope all the hardware is gone. Can't find a single part from it in the camper.

Here's some other shots to give you a better idea of how the latch operates.
The 8" lever attaches & pivots on the bracket that is connected to the window pane. When closed the lever will latch into a hook that's connected to the inside window frame.

Here's a few shots from the outside. The short bracket (pivot point) that is attached to the pane was originally riveted in place. To re-rivet it properly you would need to split the pane where the two halves are riveted together and doing that gets you into a different set of issues like finding a suitable replacement spline for the plexiglass. I used JB weld to attach the ones I replaced.
