Hanging screen door roller

A handy person from St. Paul, Minnesota says:
I have a mid 1970's Caradco sliding door. The screen door for this assembly has two top mounted nylon, concave rollers. The rollers are 1 inch in diameter, 1/4" thick, with an approximate 1/4" center hole. The rollers are riveted onto an aluminum plate that then mounts to the door via two screws.

Would your 84-017 be a suitable replacement for this roller? I would need the axel and the screw as well. Is 84-017 a complete assembly?

I would need to grind off the rivets and use the axel and screw as a replacement. Also, the current roller has some sort of shoulder on it so that the flat side of the roller does not drag on the mounting plate. I could possibly use a very thin washer to space the new roller off of the plate.

Thank you for posting. I agree, I think our 84-017 would be your best bet. It comes with everything shown, including rivet nut and screw.
