Cooper S Gear Box Troubles

So ole PKT RKT lost first reverse and then fifth gear at Monza a few weeks ago. Finally found the time to tear the box off and open it. Found one broken shift fork and I am guessing another one is hiding somewhere in the cluster. I also found these to be made of aluminum.
As I have never heard or read of anyone else having trouble with this box, am I to gather I am the only dingbat out here who managed to break his MCS box?
Did I just miss the discussion?
Has anyone figured out how to get idiot prooof shift forks short of forking 6K USD for a dog gear set?

Apologies for posting here mods, hoping to get some exposure, is all.....

You let an American drive a stick shift and look what they do to it!

I hope you get it sorted
