Question 1997 Thermostat Housing?

I recently replaced my water pump - it was leaking and my car ran hot! But, I realized while doing this, I had to take everything apart! When I had replaced the water pump - I was putting the Thermostat Cover? back on - but I realized that all the bolts were not 'stock'. the owners of it before me apparentely took the engine apart and just threw bolts on there - so when I tightened the housing cover on - the bolt as too big and it broke! So ... my question is ... where can I buy a replacement for this housing cover? I have tried napa, autozone/advanced, and oreillys...

Any ideas? thanks!

We tried to JB weld it, but it did not hold
