With Super Record / Nuovo Record "world logo" gum hoods going for upwards of $89, you don't want to tear them putting them on. Here's my method:

-Take brake levers off of bars after removing cables. -Remove remains of rotted gum hoods. -Disassemble levers from the bodies. -Slide new hood over front end of body with liberal application of rubbing alcohol. -Slide hood partially off back of body to uncover pivot hole. -Reassemble lever onto body and insert pivot. -Push hood forward to final position. -Bolt brake levers back onto bars and reattach cables.
