Sliding Door Hardware

A handy person from Mexico Beach Florida says:
The sliding door part I want to order, (#81-023), comes with a 1 1/4" wheel, where the part I am replacing has an 1 1/2" wheel. The related item, (#81-004), has the 1 1/2 wheel, but is 13/16" wide, not the 11/16" that I need. Should the size of the wheel make a difference, or can I get the 11\16" part #81-023 with the 1 1/2 wheel. Thanks. Don.

Hi Don,
With the wheel adjustment I don't think the size of wheel would matter.

I found the exact situation at my house built in 1975 11/16 inch wide roller body like #81-023 but had 1 1/2 inch wheels not the 1 1/4 that come with #81-023 strange

I agree there is enough adjustment in the body to use the smaller wheel ...actually remember the adjustment is really in the radius ...only 1/8 difference.
