I took my flywheel to the machine shop and had it machined to 0.820" I ordered a new one from rockauto and it was for a 3800 1997 Camaro. I got it today, and the machine shop told me they had to remove the dowel pins to machine it down. What should I do?

Scrap them and put the money towards a turbo.

Just pound them back in. ??? I pulled mine out, had it machined, and re-inserted.

I guess since I don't need them I won't worry about it. But the holes for the dowel pins are now very shallow and full of glue. There isnt much depth for them to go into. I was afraid of one coming out and causing damage to the flywheel or clutch.
