Help Locating Replacement Roller

A home owner from SE Iowa says:
I need assistance looking replacement rollers for my sliding glass patio door. The door is probably early 70s and I can not find any manufacturer's name or numbers.

The overall length of this aluminum channel is approx. 38" and it fits into an opening in the bottom of the wood door. Width of the channel is 7/8" and depth is about 3/4".

I have looked all over the Internet and can not find and replacement parts where the rollers are in an aluminum channel like this one. Any help or direction is greatly appreciated!

Thanks for posting, Randy. I do not believe that this roller is still made anymore, unfortunately. We do not have anything exactly like it. However, please take a look at our 81-056 an 81-138 tandem rollers. Do you think you can get these to work?
A home owner says:
Thanks for your reply Dave. I was not holding my breath regarding finding a replacement assembly.

I just ordered two 81-138 rollers you recommended and will see if I can make something work until we can afford a new door.
