Old storm windows on a 70+ house

We just bought a 70+ home most of it has already been rehabed.
Since our finances are limited we are finding ourselves having to do our own improvements. We were going to try replacment windows, ouch! to high for our budget right now...

The home has 24 (36x63) the old wooden windows they are in great shape. Then there are the alluminum strom windows that are not so good.. Gaps, missing glass windows, so winter maybe a problem if we don't work on weather proofing now..

Were can we find alluminum storm windows? to buy them one or two at a time or as we take the old down and put up the new ones.

Any step by step help anyone can give? What items will we need?

Gaps? Like felt missing? glass shops can set you up with what you need to fix them, and even tell you how to do it. There are several ways storm windows are put together ( screwed, L clips ect ) Felt or vinyl weather stripping can be reinstalled and new glass.

Glass sizes depends on the gasket depth ( 1/4 - 5/8 per side ) depending on who manufactured the storm window.Also it will tell if the glass is 1/16th or 1/8th inch glass ( ssb/dsb )

If you have more questions please ask, hope this helps
