roller has Saunders Engineering Corp, Miami, FL on one side and the number 8 on the other side. the OD measurement is 1&5/8ths but has a lot of wear and may have started out at 1&11/16

Check out our 81-236 wheel, I think this looks pretty close. You could also think about our 81-272 roller and axle kit. This kit has good versatility and you may be able to get a combination of wheel and axle to work in this instance.
A landlord from Holmes Beach, Fl says:
Gentlemen, after viewing a Swisco site showing the bottom of an Alcn door and it's 1 11/16 roller I purchased 50 rccommened 81-272 rollers. These wheels are too short and narrow to use as replacement. Do you have the 1 11/16 wheels availible and can I exchange these wheels I have.
Thank you for your time concerning this matter. David B

Ah, I see. I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble. We did once have a 1-11/16" diameter wheel with a wide (13/32") groove and a 1/4" hole for the axle, and are currently working on bringing it in again. I will let you know as soon as it becomes available!
