It's a personal preference, but I like the 120mm. Some people like to use 'stubby' tools. Make sure you also get a 2.5mm ball hex driver for the motor mount screws.

Yes it make life much better when you have to put the motor in and when you have to take it out..the ball hex driver gets in there at all the right angles

1.5mm
2.0mm
2.5mm

5.5mm socket
7.0mm socket

As for the phillips screws, I recommend you replace them with stainless steel or titanium. The torx screws are harder to find and you would need a T10 torx driver.

Depending on the brand of pinion gear you buy, you may need a US measurement driver for the set screw. I can't remember what the size is.
