Thanks Bob!

1. Went to typewriter repair shop (brought dizzy and Pertronix) 
2. Asked if they a screw "like this only a bit longer" 
3. He pulled one out his IBM Selectric parts bin.
4. It fit perfectly.
5. He threw in couple of spares.
6. He showed me a picture of his '40 Ford Coupe
7. No charge.

It's a good day.

I have had great luck using screws from a IBM Selectric typewriter.
If you cannot find them let me know and I will send you some.

Do not know what the thread measurements are, but if you go into a 
(if you can find one) typewriter shop they can probably fit you up.

 The car is a Midget w/ 1967 centrifugal-only distributor.
 What is the size/thread pitch of the little screw that holds the condenser? I
 was going to put in a Pertronix ignition unit, and the screw I have is a bit
 too short to hold it in (the base plate is thicker than a condenser) and the
 screw is getting a bit stripped. I've tried a few places, including the "they
 have everything" hardware store and nothing matches. Is it British standard
 something?  Where can I get one a bit longer than usual?
