    Hey all, this isn't actually for my A-body but for my 1972 D200 so apologies in advance if this isn't the correct place to ask but I recently had a window regulator roller crumble on me after resealing my passenger side window, tried rolling it down and breaking the groove in but should have waited for a warmer day to make the slide easier. Long story short I'm down a regulator roller and if possible I would like to just replace the roller instead of the whole regulator. I've tried modifying some GM rollers but they're too tight a fit in the center and as a result don't really roll and that's forcing the lower bracket to go straight up and down instead of following the angled track the window regulator typically follows.

    Does anyone know a part number/seller/anywhere I can get a proper roller for my truck? 1972 Dodge D200 standard cab, manual windows. I've looked all over online and have been having crappy luck so at this point I'm even totally open to diy suggestions.

    Thanks

    Here are some shots of the broken one and some of the generic replacements I tried.

    Also bonus thanks to anyone who could suggest where to get another glass channel? Mine is unsurprisingly fallen apart after 49 years and ain't no good to hold anything how it ought to.
