Default New Smashed motor...advice

Need some advice quickly. Ordered a new mot-a2 Sunday night from a online house; rush shipping to get it and the new controller / cables package from Scotty B rushed as well so I could work on it over the long weekend.

Motor arrived today with a hole in the box where it had been dropped and it bent the metal flange pretty badly. (Pictures attached).

1) is this a sacrificial piece and I should still use the motor

Or

2) who knows what was messed up inside the motor and you don't want it flying apart at speed.

I just have this fear that something will shake apart 3 months from now.

I was feeling that way just salty as I paid like crazy to have the motor here in time...

Can I still install the upgraded cables, solenoid and xct with the stock motor or best to wait till I have it all at once

Admiral A2 motor has a specific map which should be installed in the controller. This map is not right for the stock motor.

If you're worried share the pics with the dealer, ask him if you should bend it back with a crescent wrench or return it. I'll bet you $xxx he says install it.
