Does anyone know what kind of screw goes in the little block behind the safety?
A 6/32 machine screw is a little big or too coarse, a 4/40 is too small.

Since the receiver is already unrestorable but shootable I may just tap it for a 6/32 but if there is a standard size already available I'd like to go for that.

Possibly Springfield sporters has the screw but I ordered all the safety parts from them and none came with it so probably they just don't have any.

Dont know this to be a fact,but I read once that US arms use a european thread since we got our start using their stuff,and never changed.Could be rubbish,but try a metric just to see.Gun Parts Corp will have it,and they dont mind small orders.
