I am helping a friend whose husband past away and left her several scooters. I am trying to get them running so she can put them up for sale. One of the Stella 4T's has a 21mm Pinasco carb. The bike was running, but the choke cable pulled out of the brass plunger on the carb. It has a set screw in the side of the plunger, but I can not get the set screw tight enough against the cable to keep it from pulling out. When it pulled out the last time, my first thought was JB Weld...lol. I have been working on bikes for a long time and never saw a set screw arrangement like this. Anyone have any suggestions?

The threads are not stripped. It tightens down snuggly but not enough pressure to keep the cable from pulling out with normal pressure. Since I did not install this upgrade, it may be too small a cable. This would explain why it keeps pulling out. I have just ordered a new authorized cable...hopefully that will solve my problem.
