Decided to do something about the loose shift knob on the 110.
After unsuccessively being able to locate a knob with 1/2 X 20 threads and not wanting to machine the threaded area for smaller threads for a proper knob, decided on my own remedy.
The inside was opened up to get as much of the rubber out and then filled with JB Weld epoxy.
As it started to harden was able to build up the bottom to give the threads a little more bite.
Before it harden when it was in a rubbery state I trimmed away the excess that had run down the knob.
After it hardened overnight, drilled and tapped it and screwed it on and cinched it from underneath with a short nut.

I actually like that idea better than the one I used because the threads are still plastic and the JB weld was $14.Could probably buy a more than a dozen 1/2 20 locknuts for less than that.
