In my opinion you are pretty much out of luck. Sure, it might be
possible to write a dd script that can put the chunks back togeather
onto a new volume. But the amount of work it would take almost always
exceeds the value of the data you are trying to recover.

Have you tried swapping the drive positions? 0->1, 1->0.

Perfection is just a word I use occasionally with mustard.
