1950 dodge B2C weather stripping!

Forum Sponsored By  

Recommended Posts

So i have my old dodge truck, when i got it the windows in the doors were busted and the weather stripping and whatever was supposed to be in the door to seal the windows and guide them was stripped, i found a website to get parts but i dont know if they are the rite parts and if i can find them any cheaper somewhere else.. this is my first restoration and lets just say i know a ton about this truck but i dont know a lot about the little things on it. its the pilothouse 3 window cab and the doors have the vent window in them so could someone give me a hint on what parts id need for the windows to seal and roll up and down like new? i dont have any parts to reference so im basically starting from scratch. any help would be much appreciated and ill have to post some pics of it now and when i first got it. i started this project as a 6th grader and i am now a senior and entered it in its first car show as of last night! super excited!

Roberts has nearly all the parts, but after just installing their windshield and rear window gasket, I don't recommend those from there. The other parts were very good quality, although I got sent all the wrong clips for my window channel, so I ended up using weatherstrip adhesive to hold them in. For your doors, you need the channel, the sweep, and depending on wing window or not, those channels and strips. Good luck

It's a cable that runs to a transmission brake, it can be the cable or the linkage on the transmission itself that closes the shoes on the drum. Best plan is to unhook the cable and see if that allows movement, if not...start there. Gary will help you, just be sure to have your model and vin handy before calling. Steele Rubber Parts is another website to google for the gaskets, but definitely more money...but I see why.

There are two handle types...the T style just pulls straight out, then turn counter clockwise to release, the other I can't speak of, as I don't have it in my truck.

Yours turns Counter Clockwise? Mine is a Clockwise twist to release.

 

The early type park brake is a lever up through the floor with a button on top to release it.
