Welcome to SSC!

This is an interesting problem that I don't think anyone else has run into yet. What glue did you use? Did you follow the instructions on this page? If you used sandpaper or a file and then epoxy I think you should solve your problem, but if you did try that then you have another option.

If you drill a small hole through the metal rod and the plastic piece to allow glue to go into, the bond will be much stronger and shouldn't break. That would be hard to do but it should work.

Someone else might have a better idea though so it would be best to wait for more repair ideas.

I'd say use steel reinforced epoxy putty, it might hold better than other glues (fully cures in a hour).

How did you succeed in overloading it? I did not think it was possible.

If you drill a hole through the middle of the plunger part, and drill the hole a bit wider (mark how far it goes into the plunger part first!), and then fill the gap with a strong adhesive, such as (as mentioned above) steel reinforced epoxy putty.
