In Response To: Old window repair (Linda)

Rope and pully windows generally have a small hatch that you can access in the side of the jamb.

There is a small screw that holds the hatch in place. When unscrewed the hatch gives way and gives you access to the weight.

There is also a 'stop', a wooden molding which holds the window in the track.

If you remove the 'stop' and the 'hatch' you will have access to the notch on the side of each sash that holds the knotted end of the rope and the weight that connects to te other end.

Simple clotheline rope is tied to the weight and knotted to the notch in the side of the sash.
