Thank you for including the link to the part. Very helpful. Have been through 3 starters and it sounds like the dowels are out. Hopefully this does the job.

They are absolutely necessary. I learned that lesson the hard way. Where the heck was that link 2 weeks ago?

For the record, NAPA, or any of the big auto parts stores DON'T carry the proper dowels. It's a 9/16" OD. The largest I found at any store was 3/8"

I ended up making my own by bending/hammering a strip of sheet metal around a bolt. After installing, no more funky starter or clutch noises.

That in in of itself should be a testimonial for all the nay Sayers that don't believe me.

And a reposting of what it looks like.

Great post and thanks to everyone. I am on my 3rd starter and my 3 flywheel. I don't think I have these dowel pins so I am going to place an order soon.

The picture of the bell housing with the dowel was helpful.
But do you mind answering how the dowel fits or where it goes into the block ? Does it go into a hole similar to that if the bell housing or does a pin come out of the block that fits into the inside of the dowel i the bell housing. Basically what I am asking if it's a two part job. Pin inside the block and the dowel in the bell housing or if it just one piece that fits into each other. Also could you provide the diameter of that dowel and how long they are? If I don't have them does it mean I would have to get more bolts ?

Sometimes pictures speak more than words.. Thanks again !!

I been thinking about this... i think the dowel goes into the block and the bellhousing and then the bolt goes threw it.. huh??

I haven't been able to find any in town and i don't think i am going to order any online because they wont be here till the end of the month and i probably will need them this weekend.

I think i might have to make mine and i was thinking about doing them with 1/2 copper water pipe... Measure everything and cut them just right. Then probably use sandpaper to get them nice and snug. What do you guys think??

I am going to go to the dodge dealer tmrw and ask to see if they have one because i think that the 1988 jeeps use them but i am not sure if they will be the right size since i don't have the engine and tranny with me at the moment.
