    could try building up the raised 'lugs' with araldite rapid and trimming to size with a stanley knife just before it fully cures.

    or remove the lugs and slot the tube in the same place with a hacksaw blade....insert two small steel pins in the slots and araldite in place.

    easy said i know.:Sad:

    short of this i dunno.
