I would take the distributor into a good hardware store and try out different screws.


This site has a kit for about seven bucks, I once used the scews in the kit for a 59 ford distrutor I rebuilt and they worked. http://lbcunited.com/earlyford2/index.php? manufacturers_id=10&sort=1a&filter_id=273
