its not a problem of getting it in the hole because i had perfect access to it. it just seemed like the metal of the screw itself was to soft or they torqued it in to hard.

I've only ever change one rotor, had to break the rotor apart then use vise grips on the screw.

That was 1998?

spray pb blaster on it and let it soak. then come at it with needle nose vice grips.
