A handy person from New Jersey says:
Can you tell me if this mortise will fit in a Larson storm door that is 1 5/8" in width.

Thanks Lew

Hello, Lew. The door thickness doesn't really have any bearing on whether or not the 40-198 will work for you. What's more important are its backset and thickness, and to a lesser extent its other dimensions. 

I recommend carefully reviewing the measurements we show for this product. As long as they all match then it will replace your old mortise.
