Centerboard Stop Pin - What to "Glue" it with?

I am replacing the centerboard stop pin in my Montgomery 17 and I have been looking online for abou 30 minutes now where people have refurbished their centerboards and I can't find any reference to what they use to hold the stop pin in place with.

It doesn't bolt or screw, instead it is about a 3/8" solid pin that fits tightly in a hole bored through the "hollow" keel. When I removed the old bent one it simply took some pounding with a hammer and it slid out. The boond shouldn't need to be permanent since they need to be replaced if they are bent/broken.

I am thinking maybe a liberal amount of 4200 on the pin should do the trick? I have some already so hopefully this will sufice.

Do you agree or disagree?

How about a large diameter clevis pin? Stainless steel bolt and nut with washers?
I wouldn't rely on an adhesive if you don't want any surprises.

About 3/8" diameter. The new pin goes in there tight and it's a pain to knock back out. I doubt it would go far without and adhesive.

It is stainless and there are no washers or anything, just a smooth rod.

What does the pin slide into? Is it a metal bushing, fiberglass?
