50's wood closet sliding door

A home owner from healdsburg CA says:
I have a 50's ranch house with wood sliding doors on the closets. Each closet has 3 doors so the middle door is passed on each side. They have a wood floor track and the doors have a plastic guide screwed to the end of each door with a small tang that extends into the wood floor track. This small tang has broken off and without the tang the doors can hit eachother and stratch them when sliding.

I have not been able to find a replacemant.

Thanks for posting! I'm not quite sure as to which part you refer. Do you still have this broken "tang" on hand? Could we see a few pictures of it? Thank you!

I will get pictures this weekend, and they should tell the story.

Great! Let me know at your earliest convenience.
A quick learner from Healdsburg says:
picture attached. As you can see from the picture there should be a tang extending from the bottom into the groove to keep the door rolling straight.
Thanks,
Jerry

I see picture of part 67-008 and it appears that it could be modified to work. Thanks, Jerry
