classic imp vert adapter issue

So i have this strange vision, however, there is a leak at the vertical adapter due the set screw being completely broken in half, so my question is can i ditch my old vertical adapter (see last picture) and buy this:
the serial on the imp is 37359 if that helps at all as there is mention of different body styles. i noticed on the newer style vert adapter from NDZ, there is no groove for the body set screw, and on the one in the link there is a groove all around the adapter (allowing clearance for the broken set screw).

also is there anyway i get that set screw out? its pretty much broken flush with the body.
pics for reference:

also if anyone has any spare vert adapters laying around (preferably NDZ) let me know i will gladly take it off your hands.

I was handed an Impy with this exact problem a few months back. I never fixed it.

My thoughts were that I might not need the set screw, so I was going to drill (bench-press) the set screw out of the body and throw another V/A on it, just making sure I tightened the VA gas-through screw tightly (so reg, and gauge don't swivel on me.)

This is a pretty awful situation sir.

well after lots of examining, i also found that the threads for the V/A screw itself were forced in such a way that the screw does not screw in straight, or all the way in, im guessing the previous owner fell regulator first and did quite a lot of damage whole thing. case point: i bought a raw Ton Ton body to replace the strange body.
