XSleeper - Any recommendations on a file sharing website to post the pictures on? I was concerned about sealing the inside as well. I suspected I would have to remove the drywall. I thought about removing a 2 to 3 inch section as well, but probably easier to clear the whole opening. The new window is slightly smaller and slightly thinner, but not enough to make a difference in regards to the drywall. The window has nail fins on the ends and the bottom. It also has two screw holes in the top of the frame (header holes). The install instructions are brief, but say to install two screws into the header holes, strip the sash block fin (utility knife) and apply mortar wash between the bottom of the window and the top of the block. Is this really enough to hold the window in place? I assume the window is sunk into the mortar wash correct?
I use photobucket, some others use Picasa web album. There is also Flickr, I think. As for attaching the window, I prefer to have 4 screws through the frame, 2 on left, 2 on right, nothing on top. You are probably right though about the mortar holding the bottom of the window, especially if the bottom fin is sliced to the right height, then mortared in on both sides.
