Crouse-Hinds E26095 Panel - need grounding bar

I have an old 100A panel and I'd like to add an equipment grounding bar. I can't find the part anywhere on the internet, so I'm sure it is no longer manufactured.

Local Lowes has several grounding bars, but hole spacing is not right. Closest is the Eaton Cutler Hammer with panel screws spaced 1.75" apart. It looks like the panel needs 2".

Are there any companies that might carry this?

Thanks,

Bill

In this case, I would find the one that is close enough and drill/tap a screw hole where needed. Code allows drilling and tapping metal boxes for grounding purposes. The main issue is that you cannot use a piercing screw like a sheet metal screw, but it must have machined threads. Self-tapping is okay as long as the hole is drilled the right size for it to bite into the metal.

I would not think a self tapping screw would have the required 2 thread minimum.
