Scamp Window Operator

Recent 1981 Scamp owner this past weekend and looking forward to getting involved with this forum and enjoying the Scamp. We have a few repairs we need to do but one of them I'm having trouble figuring out where to start is one of the window operators is broken. The Scamp still has the older style windows on it.

The window itself will open easily and you can open and close it from the outside but when you turn the knob, nothing happens. We can even see the operator turn the metal cylinder but it just rotates around the lower window shaft without actually turning it. Almost like the operator isn't grasping the lower window shaft. Sometimes it doesn't look like the operator is turning too though.

Wondering if I need a new operator? Have any Scamp owners had luck with replacing the mechanisms with the one below? It looks similar but doesn't say for sure.

Slant Sill Torque Window Operator

Does anyone have any experience replacing the operator? Do I have to remove the window or can this be done with the window in place?

Since Scamp's are the same as Boler's the mechanism in your link I know definitly fits the Boler window so I am sure it will also fit your Scamp
