Window Rebuild, Different Latches?

Has anybody rebuilt their bus windows? Mine are extremely stiff to get in and out of a full closed position. Miserable on the fingers. I'd also love to get rid of the school bus style latch (the two hand pull towards the center) and build in something easier to operate and not so prone to randomly opening. Maybe a lever like on the emergency exits? Any experience or recommended parts are a huge help!

If you regularly silicone spray the latches and window rails they will work smooth as butter for ever.

If yours have not been lubricated in a while then clean them real good with mild soapy water, use a toothbrush or similar tool to get the gunk out of the sliding area of the latches ( the pull to the center part ) then let it all dry and silicone them.

I do mine once a month and have no complains about the windows.
