I have always liked Golden Bees, my first big tanked Cox engine and it always pains me to see missing anodizing lines on the case due to improper use of square shanked screwdrivers when mounting the engines.

My favorites are this old set of round shanked Craftsman's with a swivel head that rotates in the palm of your hand. Used properly they will never scar your anodized engine. Another plus is the flat blade fits perfectly within the slot of the back plate. No more buggered screw heads.

I understand. It took me a long time to figure out why tanks were all marked up in the same places. The Golden Bee kills me more than the Black Widow as you cannot easily touch it up. On a Black Wido, you can at least use a black marker to try and hide it.

Almost as bad as the dork that used pliers on that glow head.....grrrrrr

Might as well remind every body that a good set of JIS screwdrivers is worth every penny they cost

I place a little piece of fuel tubing over the end of my screwdrivers when mounting/unmounting an engine. Protects the tank from any chance of getting scratched.

Bob,
Did you buy those JIS screwdrivers for working in the Honda S-90?
If so, have they handled every screw you've touched, or did you need a few more?
Inquiring S-90 owners want to know!

Thanks in advance!

A piece of shrink tubing shrunk on your screw driver will help keep from scratching up those nice tanks . It is a bit smaller than fuel tubing so you can stay a bit more in center with the screw head .

Use allen socket head screws and no need to worry about scratching them.

yep, socket head screws rock! if you've never used them, they'll make you mad once you start using them, cause you'll wonder why you didn't long before. Use a ball-end allen driver

Yes, even on the damaged ones, ]

they come with various tips.  You can get a surprising amount of torque on that handle.  Penetrating oil helps.

Hopefully the mice didn't get to yours.

Edit add: As I remember I had to drill out one of the stater/windings cover machine screws then remove the shaft with vice grips.

NOT fun!
