Can't get the belt or harness back on the body. There is no way the legs will fit through the top hole. Is there a trick to this? The old one got soft and wrapped over itself as the motor spun. The new one is very stiff.

What's a BB Barbera?

If it’s rubber place in hot/almost boiling water for a few seconds to see if it softens and will stretch a little....use caution. Might be able to do the same with the dancer so you can squeeze the legs in just a little so it slips over.... again just use caution and don’t over do it on the heat. Just looking to get a little flex...see what others suggest and see what you are most comfortable with trying.

Put some water on it and it will go in easy.

Make sure it’s not water from Shreveport sir...that may cause an infection

Provocative pics.

You could also try a little windex type spray to help slide it on.

Soft soap

A little bit of KY will help it slide right in.

Wait, what are we talking about again?

Just sell the game to me, I’ll be happy to put it back on...

Not currently making anymore but can make belts anytime in any color

This is what my dancer looks like after unwinding it and pulling off the wire. It feels like gum. And the tube is all crackly looking

I would try heating it up with a heat gun and bending it back.

I had good luck with my ringmaster head for CV.
It got really hot from the magnet and warped.
I basically slowly heated it up with a heat gun which makes the rubber softer and then slowly bent it back in place.
After that I put it in the freezer for about and hour then pulled it out and it was good to go.
Been good ever since and that was about a year ago.

The rubber is actually spongy soft and is very fragile and limp. It's actually disintegrating.
