Hi Simon,
I think you are looking at the wrong end. 
Does the key fit in the cam sprocket?
I'd be looking closely at the new cam sprocket. Does that end need some light linishing? Seems like it's not engaging, and forcing the other end (camshaft) end out. 
Worth a look mate.

All goes well until they’re apparently almost home. Then the little key drops to the floor. About 4 times now….maddening. Is there a pros’ trick to this seemingly easy task? If there is, I’d really like to have it!
