Default Connecting Choke rod ?

Any input on connecting the short choke rod to the longer rod coming off carburetor. I have a sleeve that connects them, I presume. Did they crimp the sleeve where they butt up or use some kind of Glue or epoxy or did they drill them and put in a pin?? Thanks in Advance!!

I believe only friction from the rubber connecter.

If that's an aftermarket one with the two sections of rod and the steel sleeve it has to be crimped.

Crimping makes it permanent. I drill and tap for a small screw.IMG_0546.jpg

I seem to remember that when I had to take one apart years ago, that the two pieces were soldered together.
