Sorry for all the daft questions..... Having learned that lock-wires on the crankcase screws are not needed to keep them tight, is this also the case for the oil pump? Mine still had a "Ducati" embossed lead seal, which I've had to cut off to have a look inside. All seems good and measures up within tolerances in the book, so I can reassemble.
I have opened a few ducati single engines and found no locking wire on the oil pump screws and they were still all tight, however I would never run one of these engines without lock wiring the pump screws and for good measure I also put a little loctite thread locker on the screws as well! better safe than sorry!
