Hall Bean can advance mechanism repair : spares ?

Hello !
My bean can suffered from episodic seizure. I dismantled it yesterday to find the upper E clip broken, with one part sticking to the magnet of the hall sensor and the other part into the advance mechanism causing the seizure. Tomorrow, I'll go fishing for a new one at the industry parts store. So far so good.
But the red stop tabs serving as guide and stops are worn (one is flat on two sides, the other one is broken ).
Anyone has a clue of what I could use/buy/put to repair them ? Please don't suggest a new bean can .....My banker does not allow that
Thanks in advance for your help.
Below is a picture showing the red "stops" I stole from Scot J. Marburger (AKA Gunsmoke)

You can use PTFE milled and drilled to the dimensions.

bushings

Hi. I have a pair of used but good bushings in stock from a unit with a failed Hall sensor. If you send me a PM with your address and name, I can fire them off in the post to you.
Cheers
Bob

Hello folks !
I've got another question : Does everyone know the size and material used for the gasket concealed under a sealed steel plaque at the camshaft end of the bean can box ?
Before removing the plaque, I would like to be sure to get a correct replacement...
Thanks for your help !

Hi Georges. I sent the bushings off yesterday but since I've never sent anything to France before, I don't know how long it will take. I did send them air mail.
Cheers
Bob

E-bay. Search for AMP junior power timer.

Usually between 1 and 2 weeks. If the customs did not mess with the parcel...

Many many thanks !
I'll watch my mail box constantly !
As per the connector, you can find them here : http://www.vehicle-wiring-products.e...e/homepage.php
They're British but have a lot of thing useful for our bikes.
