Thanks for the idea Gary, I had tried to use some loctite for engine 
cylinders ( it is what i had in stock )
To see if I could get it to stay, but that effort was futile.
I will get some loctite for holding press fit stuff together and I may 
try your nail fix. I am thinking a small 3mm
aluminum screw. It would probably shear before a steel nail and lightly 
hold it in place.
