Smile Heater Control System Shaft Attached to Push/Pull knob

We have spent the evening using NAPA's Dry Graphite Film on all the cables behind the dash and White Lithium on the bell crank joint bracket that's on the end of the heater system box near the gas pedal. The temperature control knob has come off the end of the push/pull shaft. Since I only have one shot with an adheasive, what would you guys recommend to use? Thanks

I don't know what the factory knob is like, but my CJ came with those fancy aftermarket aluminum jobbies already installed. Each has a set screw. Maybe it's time to bling it up!!

Is this the only hammer you've got?

What JDog said. The factory knobs have a fairly soft plastic hub that can crack. I don't think you'll find an adhesive that will hold them, but a thick epoxy would be my best guess.

I would try Gorilla Glue.

Otherwise just get the black aluminum knobs on eBay, you know you want them

Thanks for the input guys. I got some epoxy from my local NAPA store and I will try that first. If this does not hold, or when it fails, the knobs with set screws will be the route. Appreciate the url.

On this same topic, has anyone seen better pulls for the heater, def, and vent instead of the cheap plastic push thru type? Something closer to what is used for the lights and windshield washer - with a screw down nut? All replacements I have seen (i.e. Quadratec and the like) are the push thru, plastic barbed style.

See Thor's post above.....I bought the same set from Krage Motorsports....I bought some other stuff at the same time so I think my actual cost was less than what Thor paid....but still worth the cost....
