Here's a 3 pack replacement kit of spiders if you need.

Should cost $1 or so. Assuming there's still enough of the Spider to put back into the coupler, reassemble the coupler with spider. (Usually one of the lobes breaks off).

Snug up the clamp just to keep it all together, and it will allow you to roast until these parts come in.

 

Don't tighten the clamp so much that you can't insert and reinsert the rotisserie.  This should function long enough until your new parts arrive.
