John there are lots of ways to build up the inside of the mounting ears, but I have found that using the same material that the coil is made of works best. I put MEK in a Nalgene bottle along with small pieces of an old coil cover and let it dissolve over night. What you end up with is a PVC solution that is the same as the coil you are repairing. It can be applied with a syringe then let cure for 24 hours. I have used this process for years and it works great.
