How are you using these? Do you have the original OD and ID measurements of
the roller and slip the tube with the right OD over it? 

The only tape drives I've "repaired" were a pair of IBM 6157s and I was
lucky enough to find replacement capstans for them. But I do have a number
of QIC drives on older systems that may be hard to find parts for. Just
trying to plan ahead!
