sorry for jacking the thread, but does anyone have any tips for getting the screws out of the engine? my cl360 uses mostly screws on the outside. I've purchased the proper japanese screwdrivers but they still strip out.

Impact driver is a must-have tool for that job.

On rare occasions, I've had to drill the head from the screw.

I got the motor in the frame but found a gap between the motor and the motor mount. Can someone tell me what I'm missing here?

Cool, thanks!

Adding one of these is always handy for making a slot in those striped out screws so the flat blade tip can be used to bust it loose

Only just found this thread from your post in 360 re-build help  .I try to 'keep an eye' on all the 360 threads but always miss a few.
You got new cam chain tensioner 'horse-shoe' sorted out. How did engine re-build go?  Most common cause of oil burning on 360's is valve guide seals, very few have high enough mileage for rings to be worn, I wouldn't expect ring wear below 30,000 miles
