Default Coolant Sensors leak (pouring out!!!!!)

Just pulled into my parking lot last night and I noticed that my engine was running hotter than normal, gage was little past half. I looked under the hood and saw that my thermostat housing was leaking fluid. It was a leak in the gasket between to plasket parts of the housing, kinda hard to explain were the leak was. Its not the thermostat o-ring that was leaking but the housing... Anyways I went ahead a replaced the housing and thermostat thinking it would solve all issues. But just ask I started the engine back up the fluid came pouring out of the two sensor holes on top of the housing. The guy at the dealer ship were I bought the housing said that the new housings don't fit well with the old sensors. I was wondering if anyone knows of a quick cheap fix for this with out buying new sensors. The sensors seemed like they fit when I put them back in but must be off just enough for the o-ring not to compress enough. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix with out buying new sensors?
