Spigot bush

The bush that fits in the fly wheel to take the first motion spigot .mine looks good with no visible wear it is a nice fit on the shaft but you can push it in with your finger into the fly wheel ( but not a sloppy fit) is it ok to secure this with thread / bearing lock or should I just get a new one
