Unfortunately, I'm told the part you need is no longer available. You may want to consider some of our newer parts as substitutes. I'm not sure if they can work, but you could try retro-fitting them. See our 21-026B pin, 23-042 roller, and 23-071 bracket. This could be your only solution, short of purchasing new doors.
A professional from CA says:
Your best bet would be to knock out the axle and use a 1-1/2" roller - 81-236 maybe with 81-307?
Find a socket (as in socket wrench) that is slightly larger than the head of the rivet, set the roller on top of it and knock it through with a punch. That wheel needs to pivot and the housing should be reusable.
