In my old sets there are many 3651 parts that are broken.
As far as I remember, these sets do not use studs on the piece. Per this answer, new piece with the same function is 32013:
Can I just buy some of 32013 and use it everywhere instructions tell me to use 3651? Is it supposed to just fit? I could try to build 3651 but I'm afraid I'll break it again.
