After staring at the online pictures of possible replacement bake elements, trying to count the number of squares to figure the length and width of available oven bake elements (some of the pics had listed measurement some did not), I settled on a push on element, since there were no matching screw in elements that appeared to come close to the measurements needed. Since it was a push on, I had to drill out the holes a bit more to fit the screws which took some time and finesse. It appears to works and it at least has enabled me to put off my bigger decision of buying a newer oven for a bit.
