Take a look on the Australian HP museum web site (http://www.hpmuseum.net/) 
under the HP2752A terminal. I am pretty sure the available documentation there
includes all 3 volumes of the Model 33 manual.

It's a steel bracket with a rubber 'head' fitted over a stud, The head is actually
a separate part, it wasn't bonded on. At one time I had some new spares, but
alas they have decayed by now.

If the head is decayed/missing, then the steel stud hits the type cylinder, with
obvious unpleasant results.
