Default Best way to rebuild the tail pitch slider?

My tail performance is good and has no issue but I want to install this tail pitch slider which is from metal and has better design. But I need to disassembly the tail pitch slider, remove the brass sleeve and install it on the upgrade part.
My question is, do I need apply a small drop of CA or super glue on this brass sleeve? I know we should leave it without any glue at first but after disassembly and re-assembly the plastic part cant hold the brass sleeve.
Thanks

Super Glue??
It's a tight fit, how did you do with the glue?

The brass bit is a very good fit in the plastic and does not require CA to hold it in place.

Yes it can because I have done it.

I find the fit is really tight for the first ~10 or so times and does not require CA. After that you do notice that it loosens and requires a drop of glue.

Is that metal piece a Mikado part? If so, what is the part number? Looks interesting.

I have that metal slider with metal arm for over a year now.
It's a "install and forget" thing.
Hovewer first time the fish eye on the arm was a little tight but now is butter smooth.
No slop at all after about 500 more flights and many crashes.
Definetly must have part.
And yes,i apply a drop of CA at the end of thread before i tight the sleeve.
