clio / megane 2003 1.4 cylinder head dowel question.

  clio 182
.... ihave recently purchased a 2003 megane 1.4 16v with a snapped cambelt upon removal of the cylinder head i have noticed that there only appears to be one cylinder head dowel... is this correct? as the opposit hole on the diagonal has only a counter sunk hole not a counter bore for a dowel... just a little confused as i dont want to put it back together with a part missing...

any help would be grateful cheers

alot of engines only have one dowel, if the countersink isnt there it doesnt have one. i have fitted many cylinder heads with only one. obviously it goes in the blck tho ,lol

taken a few 1.4 and 1.6 16v heads off and they've only had 1 dowel. It's been a while but i'm pretty sure the counter sink is there on 2 holes

lol yeah its still in the block but for all my years of working on cars ie classic fords and land rovers they always have 2 so hance my confussion and bh i have never really had many dealings with renault until i got my clio.
and yeah in the block the counter sink is there but not counter bored ie to accept another dowel but was just makin sure :)
