Hitec HS-81 Upper Case Only

Does someone have just the mounting ears (tabs) for a Hitec HS-81 servo. I don't need anything but just the upper case needed to mount this servo. The previous owner cut the tabs off.
Thanks!

Parkzone 480 set screw

Thanks for the advice. I called Horizon and they advised to "drill it out." I thought there might be a better way since drilling into the plastic body of the motor is going to chew it up.
