I've not the manual at the moment to check so I would like to know if the camshaft dowel mounetd on the rear face of the cam (where the thrust washer is mounted on) must be fitted with Loctite or some other retainer or if it needs to be mounted just with an hammer.

Hi Giorgio...I've had a look through the manual and I can find no mention of how to fit this dowel. I would suggest that you put it in the freezer until it's as cold as you can get it and the camshaft is nicely warm (hot air gun or similar...or leave it in the sun assuming you've got any(!). Then the dowel will probably just drop into the hole. Don't think I'd want to be hammering it..... loctite or similar couldn't hurt.
