For the 1968 window crank knob, I set the knob face down on a cotton shop towel on my workbench to protect it. Then I place the window crank handle on top of that. Then place the retainer pin into the hole and pound the heck out of it with a soft mallet until tight.

Hope that helps.

Similar - I protected the knob with a folded cloth and then used a vise to compress the retainer into the knob.

I second the vise option

You may make it without friends; but with them, you can do anything.
