Fairlead rollers

I purchased some new plastic delrin fairlead rollers from Rovers Accessories and for some reason they do not fit. I have a ARB winch bumber and upgraded to a synthetic winch line. I have a Warn 9000 winch. For what ever reason the vertical rollers fit perfect, but the horizontal rollers are about a 1/2 too long. What is the best way to cut these rollers down? Should I sand them using a belt sander or try to cut them? Any info or suggestions would be very helpful. I am going on a trip this weekend that will probaly require my winch.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I would use a bandsaw and coolant. By far the easiest way to get a straight cut.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

If you don't have access to a bandsaw, a hacksaw is fine, followed up with the belt sander or even a sanding block to clean it up. However you clamp it, try not to mar the surface. Maybe use a strap wrench to clamp it to a 2x4 and then hack away.
