Angry Window glazing

I recently ordered some window glazing from "Airstream Dreams" now called "Vintage Trailer Supply" for my '65 Globtrotter. I pulled the old brittle glazing off, cleaned the little track of all foreign material and then tried to install the glazing. I could not get it to go all the way in. There is about a 1/16" gap under the slopped part. I tried to use dishwashing liquid to allow it to slip in easier, but no luck. Is there a trick to this or what? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

window glazing problems

I searched "window glazing" and found the posts on how to do it. However, when I tried to do it, I could not get the vinyle glazing to go completely in the track. I worked for over 2 hours on one 2 foot strip and 1/16" is still not down in the track. That was the reason for my original post.
