Replacing roof turbine cap


My question is, will the screw holes in the base be useable to screw on the new cap, or should new holes be drilled into the base?

Also, any suggestions about removing the caulk (or whatever this stuff is) that's between cap and base of turbine? Half of the turbine cap fins were crushed after a tree limb fell on it, but there's no damage to base.

Thank you!

Why even bother. Remove the whole thing, fix the whole in the roof and add a ridge vent.
Looks a whole lot better, vents the whole roof not just a small circle.

To ansewer your question, just replace the whole unit. Not even sure where you would ever find just the top part.

Elbow grease for the old caulk and just use a larger screw for the base.
