I think the dowl pins are what the small ring of the plug hole gaskets
go around. see photo attached ( I hope it worked). they help hold the
plug hole gaskets in place. they are never removed.
there's no tighteing pattern mentioned in the book. I think Mike was
just referring to standard cover tightening procedure. I start at the
middle and work my way out in a spiraling/crossing pattern to the outer
