use jb weld
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?
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
Whatever. I have tiny enough drill bits and roll pins. I know where they are. Gorilla snot is for gorillas.
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.........
