View Full Version : Main Cap Dowels

05-11-2009, 11:28 AM
Has anybody had their main caps doweled to help reduce cap walk. I was talking with a machinist about it today and he seemed to think there was not enough wall thickness on the cap to allow for a dowel.

Just wondering if anybody had tried it.

Does this mean it's never been done?

I know this is a old post but I searched and can't find any info. I have been reading up on main girdles and now I find info on running dowels. Has any one ran dowels before? What would be better for a 500rwhp SC. Main girdle, dowels, or noting?
