Lucas distributor timing bolt

1986 XJS 5.3l V12 HE
The eccentric pin on the timing bolt (located on the side of the distributor) has come loose again - does anyone know where I can get a new or used part? Tks

I had trouble with mine, too. Perhaps a job for @John_John1 ?

Hello, I am doing maintenance on my distributor, changing the vacuum for a new one and when removing the rotor I noticed that the shaft rose easily despite the fact that I balanced the rotor appropriately. Once I got to the docks I saw them like this:


Does anyone know the measurements that correspond to the springs? And is the nylon retainer broken or just loose? If it is broken, do you know if there is a place to buy it or if you know of an alternative? Thank you
