OS says epoxy in the instructions. I have used both a 5 minute set
epoxy I got at ACE Hardware and good old tire tire CA. Both worked
fine but you have to be carefull with the real thin CAs or you will end
up with it in the carb.

After you get it replaced NEVER pull, twist or otherwise disturb an OS
carb unless the entire pinch bolt is out of the case or you will run the
risk of cracking or gouging the insulator.
