Missing screw from distributor, help

Anyone know what size screw that goes in this piece off the distributor assembly?
Or where I can find one to fit it?

I'll look later tonight as I have a distributor handy I can pull a screw from, but you should have another screw on the other side of the diaphram as well iirc (although it might be harder to get to).

It appears to be a m4 0.6 screw, 8mm long (not counting the head). The original screw has a T-15 torx head, but anything else would do.

screw

If that's the screw that holds the vacuum advance to the side of the distributor, I lost both of mine in Moab a couple years ago and then my advance unit fell off.....needless to say, performance suffered. After unsuccessfully searching through every screw bin at the True Value hardware, I wired the advance unit back on with baling wire and drive 800 miles home. Once at home I determined the screw to be a rather odd size, M3.5 x 8 and I had to mail-order 100 of them. This is on my '94 D90 ST. If that's the screw you need and you want a couple, PM me your mailing address and I'd be happy to drop some in the mail no charge. Better act fast, I only have 96 left.

That's the one. If M3.5x8 worked for you then believe that before my measurements!
