Engine Dowels

Recommended Posts

Hiya, so I had my 3F ABD engine back from the machine shop today and have noticed that there aren't any location dowels in the block or cylinder head and none returned loose. Strangely I do not recall seeing them when I removed the head from the block nor when I handed the block and head to the m/c shop.

I have looked on vw etka and I do not see them listed on either the block or head sections.

So the question is... Are there meant to be any dowels fitted to my engine? As this could save an embarrassing phone call to the m/c shop.

I've never seen any dowels on these engine and I've had the heads off a few of them. 

For lining up the gasket and head what I have is an old head bolt with the head removed and a slot cut in big enough for a flat blade screwdriver.
