Default Distributor Cap Alignment Tab Missing

I just disassembled my distributor for cleaning, lube, and new points. When I put the cap on, there seemed to be nothing to prevent it from turning slightly once the bale was installed. Upon closer inspection, I discovered that the distributor body has a notch aligned with the vac brake. This notch is supposed to have a piece of metal that fits into the notch in the cap and makes the cap fit in one position only. That tiny piece of metal is missing. Is this common? Is there a replacement? Am I going to have to fabricate (gerry-rig)?
