I've explained why I'm reluctant to remove the door again, but I will do so if that's absolutely necessary. However,I wonder if we can answer my question about using part 81-098
with a 1 11/16" height in place of my part which has a 2" height.
On October 25, 2009 a customer from Halifax, Nova Scotia asked the same question regarding the difference in height, 2" vs. 1 11/16".(See "Pre-701 Pella Roller Assembly" in your archive.)Here is Paul Sr.'s response: "The 81-098
replacement Pella patio glass door roller will replace both the "Pre-701" and the "701" Pella models. The wheel has a 1-1/2" diameter and a 3/8" thickness."This answer indicates the height difference does not matter.So, what do you think, can I order the 81-098
and use it in my door?
