Align makes different length balls that are used on arms for servos. You can take one of those and mount it on the pitch control arm, which will lower the rod enough that it should clear the screw on the hose clamp. You may need to remove some of the wood to allow that to happen. Second, you can try to use two screws to hold the sides of the housing to the boom. I see there is one lug still left on the bottom and even using a short bolt and nyloc nut might help to keep it together. The cable tie can still help provided you use one that is fairly strong (40lbs. rating) as it does not need a huge amount of pressure to keep the two halves together. The ones that are on the rear around the shaft are the critical ones and they are unaltered. Take care.
