Nuovo Record brake lever set screw

I bought a complete bike just to get the early 70's Campy brakes, and I thought I really scored with a pair of NR brake levers that according to this page are first generation NR. On closer inspection I have discovered that one of the levers is missing the set screw ("grub screw" according to the parts diagram I found on Yellow Jersey) that holds the pivot pin in place.

So I guess I need to buy another bike.

Alternatively, can anyone tell me the specifications of that screw so that I can pick one up at my local hardware store. It's part 2036 in this diagram. Now that I think about it, there's a chance that I'm missing the bushings too. The pin is kind of loose.

Small. Can't you just take the lever in with you?

At the Home Despot here in Manhattan, I saw a guy walking around the store pushing his bike. A few days later I need some small nuts and bolts for my pedal clips, and I just took my whole bike inside to verify fit in real time. Plus, no worries about locking it up on the street.

That's a great idea. Thanks! Sometimes I miss the obvious solutions.

The screw is 5mm x 0.8. Pretty standard metric size. It is 6mm long

I'm not going by memory. I'm holding one in my hand right now, with the caliper and thread gauge I just used right next to me.

Your right...darn things a lot bigger than it'd seem.

OP..send me a pm with your mailing address and I'll send one too you. And send me another PM in a day or 2 to remind me to send it..I'll forget.

Wow! Thanks! It didn't surprise me that someone was willing and able to give me the specs -- this group is pretty awesome that way -- but if you can send me the part that's just above and beyond.

@Andy_K, those plastic bushings for the pins are another item you can find at a Lowes or HD, also. Same aisle as the screws, "Fasteners", look for one of the drawers with specialty bushings and washers. I've found some that work really well for this application, and also Boulder Bike has small parts like them, if you didn't already know.
