Hey all, what on earth are these called and how do you remove them? I need to have the top of the block trued up and these need to come out. I can't find out how to remove them without knowing what they are called. Help please? Thanks! ImageUploadedByAG Free1360535508.446642.jpg

Most good machine shops can easily remove these dowel pins and replace them if needed when decking a cylinder block. Sometimes they just use vice grips and remove them then replace the pins with new ones from round stock.

Similar dowel pins are used on some flywheels as well.

Any good machine shop should do this for you as part of reconditioning the head. Have them do it and reinstall the new one. That's just my opinion.
