Anyone who is rebuilding an ‘A’ Series engine over the winter will be pleased to hear that Mini Spares is now offering the special dowels required when refitting main caps.

The special round dowels fit in the main bearing caps to locate the caps correctly and ensure the bolts go through casings precisely where the surfaces meet.

Two versions are available:
Dowel – Maincap for 1300cc engines. Part number: 12G1268. Each £2.16 inc VAT
Dowel – Maincap for all other ‘A’ Series engines. Part number: 2A54. Each £1.82 inc VAT

The dowels are sold singly. Six will be required per engine.
