Windor head bolt dowels..

Anybody know of a source for head dowels? I'm missing 2, and the short block is coming together quickly - I'm going to need them soon to mount the heads.

Re:Windor head bolt dowels..

I went through this last year and I had a hard time too. What I ended up doing was taking a piece of copper tubing that was a cut to the correct width. I cannot for the life of me remeber if it was 1/2" diameter or not but what ever is a bit bigger then the dowel. I cut a slit down the side that tubing and bent it a little smaller. I was perfect for lining the heads up and I have not had a problem at all. It may not be the best solution but it worked for me.
