WTB: Olympia SM Right Margin Stop

I recently acquired a rather nice Olympia SM3, perfectly functioning (with an elite italic typeface!) in every respect except for one: I can't set the right margin. Or rather, I can set the margin, but it doesn't do me any good.

Looking into the carriage, I noticed that the right margin stop looks to be missing (not broken, missing -- the two screws aren't even there) a small piece of metal that attaches on the back and hangs below the stop. This bit of metal is the thing that actually catches the center block and hits the little arm that dings the bell.

Much obliged if anyone has a spare parts machine they're willing to cannibalize. Thanks!
