Ideas for Manual bilge faceplate/support

My Tartan 31 is in need of some help on the manual pump's outside support. I've replaced the diaphragm itself and it pumps fine, but because the white plastic cover has disintegrated, after a few hard pumps, the screws (8 on this model) appear ready to rip out. I'd like to do something before that happens. Replacement covers are smaller. I wonder if anyone knows what brand was originally installed on 1988 models - this is hull 48. Or suggestions on what to protect the screws to carry the force of pumping without ripping out.
thanks in advance.
