    I bought a brake pedal cover from Amazon for $10 shipped. I was worried it was cheap plastic at first but, it was definitely made of rubber. Could not get it on and my fingers were starting to hurt. Heated it with a propane torch from far away then used Windex for lube. Like in the old days when you put handlebar grips on a bike.
    With what I learned, I would drop it in a pan of near boiling water then use Windex.

    I sometimes use rubbing alcohol as a lubricant that helps get a rubber or plastic part into position. It will evaporate relatively quickly so fewer issues with trapped moisture (rust).

    His can very well be defined as NOS, no matter if they are currently still being produced. The very definition of the O is OLD.

    If NOS from the 70’s then don’t be surprised if the rubber crumbles like the rubber soles on my cross country ski boots from when I bought them in the mid 80’s. Just say’n. There are still parts for my 68 Z/28 in GM’s Parts Warehouses as well.
