timing chain replace

Replacing the timing chain on my all original 89 Mustang with Ford Racing Timing Chain Set M-6268-A302. The original chain and gears have been removed.

Questions are:

1) I've read that the dowels come out pretty easily but, like I said, mine is original and doesn't want to come out. Is it necessary to replace the dowel pin? If so any tips for getting it out? (engine is in the car)

2) Everything I read says this timing set is supposed to be used with a one piece fuel pump eccentric. Again, this is an all stock engine, does it have the one piece eccentric?

3) Finally, should I put thread locker or anti-seize on the bolts for the cam, damper, etc?

Thanks, Terry
