I don't think you can.

I think your best course of action is to backup SQL DB's on Node 2 then shut it down (at least the SQL services) and do a DR restore on the newly created node. This means you will be recovering your system DB's as well as the other DB's you have on there http://community.office365.com/en-us/f/154/t/255789.aspx

Once you are sure that Node 1 is working correctly reinstall cluster and SQL on Node 2 to add it as a fresh node into the cluster.

I think if you try to force this you are going to cause more problems for yourself.
