Any suggestions on where I can find a replacement or is there an easy way to modify my existing door to accept the weatherstripping with a 1/8" kerf?
Google "peachtree door weatherstripping." Older Peachtrees used the 1/4" kerf. The factory-type weatherstripping is not available AFAIK. There is an after-market kit available that has standard weatherstripping with a plastic channel that sits inside the oversized kerf. My experience was that it did not work real well (the plastic channel did not want to sit evenly in the channel). Hope this helps.
