    Head dowel pin

    After installing the motor on my rxp I noticed the head dowel pin fell. Will I be ok to run it without the pin or am I looking at problems?

    Only one came off. Will I need a new gasket? It was ran no more than 2 minutes on the water hose.

    as long as its not inside the motor, it should be ok, dont forget to retorque the head after you warm her up.

    That head gasket is gonna be shot as well if that head shifts due to not having the dowel pins installed.
