One tip to add to bmartin's about the cb750 engine. If you get a milk crate or a large wooden box of roughtly the same size you can tip the engine sideways so the engine is supported in three places on the main case and head and not tipped on the points cover at all. Makes it super easy fo get the cb750 engine in and out of the frame without putting any pressure on the crank (which standing it on the points side does). I have pulled motors out of whole bikes using this method, and put them in too.

When installing stainless steel cap screws for the first time (to replace the old soft japanese philips heads that are made out of ice cream), coat the threads in some tool oil. It is very light and it helps the threads slip in withoutdamaging the hole in the block and pulling the threads out.
