    Welcome to CHR! I've not messed with a Chevy of that vintage, but the only door glass I did long ago just had a strip of flat rubber, almost like a tire inner tube with the width equal to the inside measure of the channel. Seems to me that to get the frame off I used a piece of 2x4 against the glass and rapped it with a hammer. The channel was narrower at the open side, making a tight friction fit pinching the rubber to the glass.
    There's several YouTube videos of door glass on Chevy trucks of that time. Have you done any Google research?

    After 2 hours I finally removed the frame from the old glass..rust, and a ton of silicone were the culprits...used a torch, and a soldering gun to get it off. Youtube does not cover installing the glass into the frame. thanks for the reply

    Factory manual says to squirt gasoline on the rubber in the channel to soften it up to remove. Use light weight oil to re-install.
