Put some resistance in series with the transformer primary to drop it down a bit. I found these series regulators are not happy when you get to 40 volts input and about the only way you can kill them. you only need 3 volts above the output to make them regulate.  Changing the resistor to ground will not help because it is a voltage reference. You will have output -1.25V across that resistor. Try Mouser.

I don't know about Digikey or most of the other suppliers but I can tell you Mouser is the best supplier I have ever found. If they have what your looking for you never have to pose as a business and they are happy to sell any item with no minimum. They will even send you a phone book sized catalog now and than with everything they supply. I have never had to wait for back orders and the return policy is simple. If it don't work they replace it. No inflated shipping charges either. I agree with Frank, Try Mouser.
