Ukulele Pegs for a dulcimer

6B BlackButton Ukulele Pegs -
I had ordered Uke pegs years ago, are they making them to fit larger Uke's now? The pegs do not fit in the holds, they are a bit too large.
Do you know if they make Uke pegs with different size gears, ones just a tiny bit smaller?
The reason I was replacing the ones I have is because they were not holding the tuning and I wanted black buttons. If I was to tap them in, would that be a bad idea (not turn or eat away the inside of the hole)?
What if I try replacing the screws on the old pair, would that help in holding the string tension?
Do you have any ideas?
By the way, this was for an old dulcimer (Sears) and Uke pegs have fit the instrument - in the past. It never had a great tone but has been good for learning on how to fix Dulcimers.
I ended up with the new set except the gears, I used my old one - mix & match kinda.
Photo is of the old pegs, not a close up or details of the gears or the hole. Just looking for suggestions I can try or if you know if Uke pegs sets come with different size gears
thanks for any help you can suggest
