Dowel Pins Required for Head Install?

When I took the head off my H22A4, there were no dowel pins in place. Are the dowel pins necessary to install the head?

Re: Dowel Pins Required for Head Install?

I'm not sure about H motors but k motors use them. I like them, it keeps the head aligned when installing it. last thing you want is to try and hover a 40pound on the block and trying not to scratch it up underneath.

notice part number27 on the right side of the diagram. This motor is from a 99prelude sh. I also looked up a 96 prelude si vtec. they all have these pins. are you sure they did not fall out? f you never took your head before I can't see it not having them.

Turns out they were inside the head. After I took off the head, I sent it straight to get reconditioned and the shop sent the dowel pins back in a box.
