    The black pull knob on the choke fell off and I guess it is now stripped because it will not stay on the carb. From the parts fiche it looks like you have to replace the entire "starter plunger" to get the knob. Any ideas? Is there a glue or some other option that may be strong enough to hold it on the shaft long term?

    you're too funny-

    let see:

    get the drill = 1 minute

    get the extension cord = 1 minute

    remove the part off the carb. = 1 minute

    find a drill bit small enough to drill plunger shaft = 15 minute

    dont have a bit, goto hardware store, buy tiny bit, = 60 minutes

    break tiny bit = 1 second

    goto hardware store, buy 2nd tiny bit, = 50 minutes

    finish drilling carfully = 5 minutes

    dont have rollpin = 15 minute

    goto hardware store,cant find small rollpin = 60 minute



    take demarko's advice, epoxy the plunger cap on < 1 minute

    Cmon QWERTY- just trying to keep things fun and lively. Chances are if the O.P. has to ask how to fix this he probably doesnt have the tool and parts to fix it.

    Why does it take you 60 minutes to go to a hardware store that is within walking distance of your house

    Maybe he has to ask permission to leave the house?

    I had the same problem. I am also a BIG fan of JB weld as it has always worked "great" for me. My choke knob has remained in place ever since the 'weld'. In my opinion, a 'great product'. I also carry the JB putty in my bikes tool kit. Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........
