Default maytag 82 busted mag tower

Got my 82 all tore apart and got a question about the mag.The top of tower where it screws the HT lead is busted off but the HT brass screw is still there.The only way I think i can fix this is to screw in the HT lead as tight as possible and put a automotive coil rubber on it and fill with silicone and fig a way to shore it up by mounting a piece of plastic to hold down the coil rubber.Anybody got a better idea.I havent test the mag yet but thats next.
