ok, im half way through my T-56 swap, Im trying to put on the Centerforce D/F and the directions say to be sure and use the alignment dowels if they were originally used. there are extra non-threaded holes on the flywheel and P/P.

is that what those are for??
where do I get the Dowel pins?

im using a flywheel from a 75 chevy 454 1ton
and a Clutch and P/P setup from a 72'454 chevelle.
thanx guys

I recently installed a new centerforce dual friction in my Chevelle.The flywheel had the holes for the dowels but no dowels were in them.I installed the clutch without them and have had no problems.

Im curious as to what bellhousing you used and did you use the stock Z-bar and clutch fork?

Both the crank and flywheel have an additional hole for a dowel pin. This is the ONLY location where it is important to line up the flywheel, as long as you line up these 2 holes, the dowel pin is unnecessary. The clutch itself is SUPPOSED to have a neutral balance, therefore it doesn't matter which holes of the pressure plate are mated to holes of the flywheel.
Those extra non-threaded holes in the flywheel were for balancing the flywheel.

WEll..... I just relized that the 11" clutch wont fit in the stock T-5 bellhousing that I was planning on using. so...Lakewood here I come. as far as Z-bar goes....im not using one. im using the throw out set up off a 93 or newer camero.

thanx guys
