Default shift knob adapter question

Is it possible to remove and reuse the white 5 speed threaded insert from the original shift knob?
I bought a used 5 spd sti titanium shift knob for my legacy gt but it does not include the insert adapter to thread on to the shifter.
I removed the stock knob and looked at it but it seems glued on but it seems like i can break apart the shift knob at the seams to expose the insert.
Is there a way for me to reuse that and if so, would i have to jb weld or epoxy it into the knew shift knob?? is a replacement adapter sold anywhere?

Find some semi-rigid nylon tube that fits in the knob, but the internal diameter is slightly smaller than the threads on the shift lever. If it looks like the threads will tap a groove in the nylon, cut the tube to fit the knob and glue it in. Then screw the knob onto the lever, self-tapping the insert.
I think that's how my MOMO Subaru knob worked.
