Default Broken Cooling Head on Macstar .28 - options?

I busted the top five cooling fins off my Ofna Macstar .28 on saturday during a hideous roll-over. Immediately the temps jumped from the 220s up to the 300s.

A new cooling head for this $100 motor costs $40 - pretty ridiculous. I found a new head for an Ofna Force .28 for $15, but it's a different part number and I assume it doesn't fit my mill.

What are my options? Right now, I've repaired the head with JB Weld and it feels impossible to pry apart, but I assume lots of heat and vibration will change that...

Thanks
Dominic

HE means the head is $40, the entire motor costs $100.
