I would use a plex fine screw to lower or raise a Cu/Beryllium spring plate against a PCB Cu trace. But i don't know the ranges of the round rotating parallel Al plates...

Show a circuit and that would be helpful to decide what the components are doing.

i guess the trimmer cap is tuning so if you use a different value you will effect the tuning range unless you compensate by changing the coil
