Default Installing New Tappet Rollers

I am replacing some rollers on two of the tappets and wondering if they should all be replaced as a set? the other two have minimal movement up and down. Planning on using eastern rollers, anyone have experience with this brand? Thanks! 79 IH btw

well guess the eastern rollers are of a smaller diameter. Time to look for bigger axle style 0.305" if they exist. Or just new tappets all together.
