Mark the distributor position before removing. Use a sharp object to scribe across a mating point between the distributor and cylinder head.
You are not going to damage the screw and if it is, you would have to check the junk yard or places where they sell bolts and nuts. Hammering the top of the screw would get it to loosen but you don't have to use excessive force. Removing the distributor would avoid damaging the bearings and distributor.
