The older Craftsman blue handle #3 screwdriver fits the 750 clutck cover scres really well and maybe the points cover..

I use that same, old screwdriver.  Do the new ones not fit as well?

Hmmm, I just thought I'd keep an eye out for the correct fitting screwdriver. The seed was planted by a guy on ebay selling kits of correct J.I.S cross-head screws for sohc fours:

I've always assumed that the #3 JIT was similar in size to the #3 Phillips, but really I have no idea.

I just grind the tip of #3 Phillips slightly so drive 'wings' don't slip.
 Not ideal but easier than looking for the several JIS I've got stashed 'real safe' (OK, some people may say lost  ;D)

I got JIS screw driver set for Christmas. Rebuilding carbs are so much easier with them.  Of course if the screw heads are not buggered up by someone else already...

A while back I was poking through a box of random cheap old tools at a second-hand store. Found a couple of '60s Honda wrenches, plus a plug wrench and screwdriver that looked about right. Screwdriver handle said VESSEL.

JIS impact driver bits +2 +3 +4 at VESSEL site.

They sell Phillips screwdrivers too - identified P1 P2 etc.

Agreed. I was excited to open and use the set I was gifted over the holidays!

Quality tools aren’t cheap. But they can be cheaper if the cheap China tool breaks and has to be replaced (been there)

I got these off Amazon and use with my impact driver, or with a screwdriver using a socket (and a bit of tape if needed).
