Default Distributor Shaft Sleeve

I need to re-install the Shaft Sleeves on a couple of Distributors I took apart and rebuilt. Would it be OK if I used 1/8" dia Roll Pins instead of 1/8" solid pins?

Sounds good to me. I believe the new sleeves you would get from the vendors come with a roll pin instead of solid as well.

I just put 2 together and everything is tight. Used the same roll pins as small block and big block Fords use.
