    Hi there,
    Just swapping out transmissions.

    The new transmission I have has had the transfer case dowels removed. Can the transfer case be run without these dowels or do they help alignment under power. How important are they?

    Here is a picture of the old transmission that I removed:

    I was able to spin the top one with vice grips but not able to remove it. You can see I've marred it. Going to get a small gas torch today and see if some heat helps. Can buy these from Japan but they will take 2 weeks to get here.

    Are they really necessary?

    Thanks.

    I would not run my car without these dowel pins. Not only do they ensure proper alignment but they share the twisting load carried along with the fasteners.

    Thanks - I managed to find some dowels exactly the same from a hardware store, which was suprising. The mitsi part number is MF472405 which states a 10mm x 20mm dowel.

    Gently tapped them in and good to go.
