I remember a few years back I replaced a roller similar to the one in your photo. It was a little bit of work, but I was able to install the 81-023 with the suggested screws (33-103 and 33-104). Take a look at this roller to see if it's dimensions match up to your original. After all, it's entirely possible the old part I worked with back then was a little different than yours. I'm just working off of memory. Also note that you might also be able to replace the wheel and axle and reuse your existing housing; see our 81-266 and 81-272.

The rollers and axels might work, but those suggested are 5/16" larger than the existing ones. I'm not sure I'd have the clearance to install the door with that much difference.

Thanks for getting back to us. Take a look at the 81-223 1-1/8" diameter wheel. Do you think this wheel would work for you along with the axle set 81-310? You can use this to repair your existing housing without having to get a new one.
