Default distributor rotor: screw not sitting flush, taps surrounding pastic once every turn?

im changing out the rotor, and the screw is not sitting flush. how big of a deal is this? should i exhange for another one or sand it down so that it doesnt tap the plastic surrounding when it rotates; it taps it once every turn.

I would return the rotor for another or run without that cover.
