Default mep002a/mep003a float switch connector

The straight connector connected to my MEP002a float switch has been sheared off. P/n ITT Cannon MS3108R10SL-3S. It has an elbow connector connected to the top of it. I just need the straight connector. I'd like to buy one if someone has one for sale. But I thought I might wrap the threads in teflon tape and try a JB weld repair. The problem is I can't tell by looking at it, how it should be aligned. Can anyone tell me if the keyed slot on the bottom aligns with the keyed slot on the top? Thanks

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. This is the sheared connector.

There are three different ways I can align it and then JB weld it together. I think the correct alignment is as depicted below. Can anyone confirm this for me? Thanks

Try again, image didn't upload

Why do you not just BUY a new connector from ITT Cannon? These are available from just about ANY of their distributers.

I was hoping to repair it for less than the $60 they want for it.

Send me an e mail and I will send you the contact info for a person in Texas who will fix you up and treat you right.
The switches in those float senders are verf fragile and work with a magnatized float that open the contacts,would go for a replacement unit. Also the contacts for the switch are rated at 1 amp,and will only run a relay.
looking down at the connector, the two terminals to the right of the key are the active one,.
