I’m in the process of reassembling the door hardware on my ‘52 half ton and I’m trying to insert the rubber sweep that contacts the outside of the glass. It appears that the sweep that I bought from Classic Parts, is way too big to slide in the channel. The channel is approximately 5/16 of a inch wide and the cross section of the sweep that fits in the channel measures 7/16”.

My thought on the issue is it’s not correct for this application but figured I throw it out to my fellow ‘bolters to get there take on it.

Yes I ran into this same problem
I got sweeps from two places
One I ordered on its own the other came with a window “set”
I got them mixed up
But one was okay and one was way too big like yours
Anyway
I did cram the bigger one in one screwdriver blade tip width at a time
Took forever
Then I found the smaller normal size rubber from the other vendor
So it is possible
Next time I’ll just trim some off and put a slick of RTV black to glue it in if I cut too much off
This rubber is semi important to keep the window from rattling agains steel
Also the felt channel helps with that too
Old windows often get a big road rash pattern where the window raising scissor rivets rattle into the glass

I ordered mine from classic parts, 03-712, however they don't appear to list that part number anymore. The filling station has the correct ones, their part number CV287 should work well for your application.

I did order mine from Classic Parts. They were part of a door felt kit (item# 03-612), which included the beaded window seals (item # 03-513). I just checked the Filling Station and unfortunately, not in stock.

Steele has them, but $$$$$! and they say 2-4 weeks out. So you probably don't want to wait that long (or pay that much).

In your shoes, I'd be breaking out the razor knife and whittle those down to the right size.

I think think you may be right. I also checked Steele and came to the same conclusion! I’ve got a few days before they have to go in so I’ll see what other options may pop up.

Phil , take a look on Rockauto. Looks like they have two styles that you buy "by the foot" . Price is right if they have it in stock. Here's a screen shot, The WC24FT seems to be closest to the right size 1/4 x 5/8 . ( note that the description does not match the drawing detail ) Anyway, thought it might be useful.

I ended up cutting the lip a little from both sides and used WD40 and a trim tool to push them in. I tried sliding them in but couldn’t get any further than an inch. To cut them, I clamped two steel rulers (from my combo squares), one on each side to use as a guide, and sliced off a bit less than a 1/16” from each side with a utility knife with a new blade. It was a bit tight but I believe it will work as intended.

Clever use of the rulers
