Cylinder head dowels (T16)

#1 Post by Caskill » Tue Dec 03, 2019 3:10 pm

Hi all. I've been searching for some steel head dowels for my 220 t series engine as my plastic ones have disintegrated. Are these readily available items? All I can seem to find are ones for k series and td5 engines that seem to have similar problems but am unsure of the sizes of these. Has anyone any idea where to find suitable ones? I can make some up without too much hassle but would be good to hear of others experience first.

Cheers

Did you sort this? If not, I'm pulling my engine at the moment, and I can at least measure them up when I pop the head off.

thanks for the offer mate, I've actually got my engine in bits just now so have all of the sizes but was just looking to see if you could buy dowels before making them myself. For reference the dowels are 16ODx12IDx14

Most engineering supplys sell dowels but if the sizes above are right that is one big dowel .

Yeah biggest diameter you seem to get is 14mm, T series is definitely 16mm. Theyre actually 18mm deep too not 14 :laughing2
