track light replacement fixtures

I need to replace fixtures in a track that was installed several years ago.
I need line voltage fixtures that will take bulbs up to 150 watts. I bought four fixtures at a local hardware store, but the plug in is too wide for the track. There is no manufacturer or size written on the old fixture. I am not sure how to find one on the internet as I do not see the width written on the specifications of the fixtures for sale. It is a three wire type fixture that is 7/16 inches wide-- the new ones are 9/16. How do I find the correct size?

I think the best choice would be to replace the tracks. Even if you find fixtures that would fit in the existing tracks, they would likely not be UL listed for use in the them. Since you are talking about using 150W bulbs, you want to make sure the track can support them.
