Distributor Removal

My vacuum advance isn't doing anything, so i figured I'd remove the distributor assembly to see what was the matter. I can't get it out. I removed the bolts holding it in, and loosened the clamp; it rotates freely but there's something still holding it in there that I cannot see.
Engine is an Austin 1500 B series, with a Lucas DM-2 distributor.

Yeah, I thought it would simply pull out, but there's definitely something holding it in there.

Got it out, all it took was a little extra force with a screwdriver.

Looks like I need a new vacuum advance unit, anyone know where I could find an inexpensive replacement?
