We have just put the new motor in and run it two nights pulled the cover off to check our lash and found 1 mouse trap retainer clip was snapped in half!. now how common is it to snap the clip on these mouse traps?

Not very common at all. I would be looking for geometry problems but the first thing I would look at was whether I had the mouse ears on the lifter studs angled toward the inside instead of the out. Turned one way it hold clips off the rocker turned toward camshaft and "There you have it" the correct way!!
