Replacing the cam and lifters on a 1994 3.9 and on dismantling noticed that there is no camshaft location plate fitted as noted in a parts manual.

should I need to fit one or just assemble as per factory spec
Appreciate any advice

Thanks

Never had a 3.9 but if it has been ok without one and factory spec doesn't require it I would just build it up

@Bowie69 is pretty well clued up on V8 engines, he may offer some sage advice regards Stephen

Recently did my 3.9, which was from a 97 Disco 1. 

I just replaced with a bog standard cam, gears and chain. Here's the pics from my build up, which was just a matter of putting back all the bits that came off - and went like this....

Camshaft in and retaining plate on. Checking end float - I got 0.085mm:

Gears, chain and Woodruff key:

Don't know if that little lot sheds any light...
