sliding glass door rollers

A home owner from LaBelle, FL says:
Looking for replacement rollers for sliding glass door. Do not have photo of them installed. They have the #138 on them. The house was built in '81 I imagine they are that old. We had to take the bottom metal off the glass and slide them out the side to remove them after removing 2 screws on each side of the door if that helps. The bottom metal is open with 2 strips of spline (?)running the length of the bottom of the door.
The photos show the measurements.
Thank you. If this doesn't work I will mail in the part.

Hello, Gayle. Start by looking at our 81-007 and let me know if this is a good match.

Thanks Tom...that sure seems to be right. I re-measured against the illustration & all matches. I will be ordering 2 rollers.
But maybe you can help me with the worn out weather striping along the bottom also before I order the rollers. Please see the photos I am sending.
This is in 2 parts...one piece (it's harder than the rubber/vinyl strip) slipped out of a track on the door and it holds the 1/2 rubber strip. This piece does not need replacing if they come separate. It seems to press into a recess on the part that slips out of the track on the bottom side of the sliding door. It doesn't have any pile on it's just rubber that has cracked & warped.
I hope the photos will explain better.
Thank you - Gayle

Hi, hopefully I can help. To be honest, I'm not sure if this piece is still available. It might be too old. However, is it possible to show us the profile end? That will let us see its shape. Thanks!
