TEAC, the company that used to make consumer and semi-professional tape recorders, used to sell a rubber cleaning and conditioning fluid for pinch rollers on tape recorders. I think the stock number is RC or RC-1. Besides cleaning the rubber, it made it really "grippy." I expect that would help the printer roller a lot, although I have not tried it on the 82143A (which I don't have). You might see if they still carry it. Their website is teac.com . Their USA office is in Montebello, CA. I worked there in the early 1980's, repairing tape recorders.
