The parts book gives M4 x 6mm long for the points screw. Why change it to a
torx head screw though? Is your present one chewed up? You need to be a
bit careful with tightening these small screws, and I would worry that a
torx head one might be made from harder material than the original, which
could make it more likely to damage the threaded baseplate if
It's the same thread size and length for the distributor with a slotted
screw in the baseplate as for the one that has the hex-head screw through

I can see how that might be the case, but I did them about two weeks ago.
BTW I'm going to look for a torx head screw to replace the one that holds
them in place. What size is it?
