Default Need Type CH Main Breaker Panel Bus Stab

My Cutler Hammer 200V Main breaker panel is missing a bus stab. In this 15 yr old panel they are held on by a single bolt that must have fallen off. This part is not sold as a "renew" part so Eaton was no help.

My panel has two types of bus stabs and I need the smaller of the two that has the bolt in between two "stabs" protruding from the rectangular metal piece. I have a picture of the missing part but was not able to post the picture in this forum.

Anyone know where I can get one of these?

Thanks!

Not sure what a 200V main breaker panel is. Cutler Hammer does put model numbers on their panels.

Ok, just trying to understand something.
You just discovered, after 15 years, that the bolt holding the main breaker onto the bus is missing?
Or,
Is this a surplus loadcenter?

Ok, I think I might understand.
The bus part you are looking for, would that be for the branch breakers?
Would this screw onto the busbar somewhere near the bottom of the bus and have two sizes. One for let's say, to keep it simple, black and one for red "phase"?

Do the right thing. Be safe. Call a licensed electrician.
