    I'm about to put the head back on my d15b7 and I have a few questions.

    First, are there only 2 head "dowels" between the head and the block?

    Second, If there are only two, which holes do they go in?

    Third, During disassembly, the guy at the machine shop that did the head rebuild, pulled my old ones out and it lookes like he used vice-grips. One side is nice and smooth and the other looks like hell. (scratched, dented, and out of round) I would assume that I need new ones or is the fit of the sleeves not critical?

    Sorry, no pics available.

    You can get new ones from honda. Cheap. Some machine shops and some auto parts stores will carry them as well. Don't re-use the old ones.

    You can assemble the head without the dowels but I would not recommend it.

    I found this in Autozone repair guides:
    AutoZone.com | Vehicle Selection - Year
    (If it doesn't show here is my d15b7 block with dowel locations marked just like in the diagram). Notice where the oil control jet is (circled in blue). Good luck.
