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

I don't think is mandatory to change all 4, but I would.

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.

ok. just received tappets. they are about 1/8th longer on the body and have oil holes on top. also the axles protrude a bit and hit the tappet block. is the length an issue or can it be adjusted and should the axles be filed down a bit to fit?
