roller replacement

A quick learner says:
The door is aluminum 94.5"x81.5" installed in 1968. Bottom rollers are 3/4" thick x 2.75" approx long x 1.5" tall approx. One roller that is pictured has a hole in it that a bolt/nut fastened to the door frame.

The other seems to be running in a track with noway of getting out that I can see. Each side has set screws but does not seem to do anything but act like a stop. Each one does have the adjustment screws. Please contact me with any questions or if you need any more info.

Thank you

I'm not sure if your roller is still available. Take a look at our 81-056 and 81-140 rollers to start. I wonder if these are newer versions of your own part. Could you retro fit them to your door?
A professional from California says:
81-140 will probably not work because of the width of the rail. Check your door rail to see if a standard width wheel will fit on it. Most doors use a rail approximately 1/4" wide. Your roller looks like it is meant for a 3/8" wide rail.
