I’m sure the knurled brass insert on mine wasn’t glued in before; but it was loose in it’s seating. It is also fully seized onto the stud, so instead of try to replace all those parts, and I don’t see any reason that it would need to come out again, so I’ll just make it permanent.

I liked the idea of brass for the reason of it being softer. With everything adjusted well, the cowl shouldn’t have that much load on the wingnut, and I think it will take vibration better, and a lock washer will have more of an effect on it since it can dig in a bit. 1/4-28 is a weird size, so McMaster was the only place I could find them.
