The guides are an interference fit. Original guides that had an outside diameter of 14.01mm need the slightly larger standard size 14.03 for a good second go round. The other sizes for repair of that guide would then be 14.2 and 14.4mm. These were originally designed for holes that were rebored after being ovaled out by guides that came loose.

The original guides and seals and rotators were updated in production over the years. A good, knowledgable machine shop can put the newer style guides, seals and spring rotators. Its a good investment.
