I replaced all the door seals on my 77 B100 all way around. More pricey than I expected but it really sealed the van up. Doors don't rattle going down the road or leak when it rains or gets washed. Last on my list is the vent windows seals. One side is chewed up pretty bad from years of neglect before I got it. Can't find them anywhere. Not Fairchild, Metro or Steele Rubber. Google search just keeps offering me countless Jeep vent window gaskets but I can't see those fitting.

Anyone have any source for getting those? Or is there another vehicle altogether who's gaskets will fit the B100?

As far as I know vent window seals are not being reproduced.

On my 93 Chevy they're not being reproduced either....I sealed them up with black RTV. Not really what I wanted to do but they whistled and leaked water.

I was afraid of that. I actually use the vent windows every time I'm riding though so I really don't want to seal them shut.

I was hoping for new but at this point a newer set not chewed up from the junk yard may be my only option.

Iā€™m looking too......I fixed mine w gorilla tape, I know that sounds ghetto redneck, but it looks better than it did all chewed up.
I ran the tape down the outside edge of the vent 1/4ā€ and folded the tape in half to put another 1/4ā€ on the inside edge. Works pretty good for a temp fix.


Welp....

Part numbers are 2956202, 4083428, 4057968 for right front side, and 2956203, 4083429 for left side. Search them numbers on ebay, a few NOS show up, but they are not cheap. Dpmotorparts also has them for $65.

Awesome! And this is why I love this forum. Thank you. The eBay prices are nuts but the DP Motor parts had what I needed. I will eventually get both sides but for now the passenger was the one that looked to have been attached by a beaver and a caulk gun. LOL.

Just be careful with NOS rubber parts. They may be as dried up and useless as what you have now. I know from experience unfotunately.
