    Getting the dowels out is also very difficult.

    Got my flywheel back from the machine shop today.
    They had to make new dowels, which are now slightly bigger than the holes in the clutch cover.
    If it comes to it, can I enlarge the holes in the clutch cover?

    It should be easy to drill them out, but they are there for alignment, so make sure you drill carefully and with correct size bit so it is not loose.

    agreed, i'd pop back to the machine shop and get them to turn the dowels down where they go in the clutch cover. if not you'll be drilling cover plates every time you need a clutch. lots of cars/vans have stepped dowels and it shouldn't be an issue to machine them.
    neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Hopefully he'd not be changing the clutch that often that drilling a couple of holes isnt doable.

    Update
    I took the flywheel and clutch cover plate back to the workshop.
    he measured the dowels and the alignment holes in the clutch cover. "They're both 6.3mm" he says.
    I pointed out that the dowels were 6.35mm and the holes were 6.25mm.
    "That'll tighten down"
    Obviously it didn't.
    Discussion ensues about how he measured the dowels before he took them out etc, etc.
    How I could drill out the holes in the clutch cover.
    We ended up agreeing that he would machine some new dowels at 6.2mm

    Can't say I'm exactly thrilled, and why couldn't he just come clean and say "yeah, that's not right".
