loader hydraulics question -part2

My Kubota loader was getting sloppy and it was suggested here that I replace the seals inside the hydraulic cylinders. Good advice and I bought the kits. However, one of the seals is made of a material that doesn't expand like a rubber o-ring, yet needs to be stretched to get it on.

What is the secret to assembly for these kinds of materials? Get it hot first? Stretch it then compress it with something like a ring compressor?

After just stretching it on, I tried to just force it into the cylinder, but the screw threads buggered it all up. I don't want to try any more before knowing what I am doing.

By the way, I took a picture in case seeing the seal would help in the explanation. Click below to see the inside of the cylinder and the buggered up seal.
