It is possible that the washer was a victim of "falling down into the engine during service/rebuild syndrome"?
Check all the head studs for torque and look for corrosion on them as well, if they seem rusted or surface damage replace them before they break and cause real damage.
If you got the engine out for a clutch might as well go thru its head studs and other impossible stuff when installed in the car. Do a valve adustment while its out too, lots easier at that time.

Great purchase, they are an awesome car.
Here is mine........
