Got my brand new flywheel last week and I was just wondering how to install those 3 dowel pins that goes on the flywheel.
How do I install them and how deep should they go??

3 dowel pins? The ones on the outside where the clutch bolts down? Did the dowel pins come with the flywheel, but they are not installed?

Yes. It's those on the outside for the pp. They were not installed, they came in a sealed bag together with the flywheel.

PS. Forgot to mention that the flywheel is for my dd which is has a 6G72 SOHC engine. But I believe that installing dowel pins are the same on most flywheels

Just tap them in. I have resurfaced hundreds of flywheels and all you do is take a hammer and tap them in. They are a few thousandths of an inch larger than the hole so it might take some force. They are extremely hard steel though, so don't worry about hurting them. As for how far to drive them in, usually half way is fine.

Thanks

Is there something else that I should think about when taping them in?? I don't need to worry about the flywheel getting bent, or out of balance when taping the dowel pins in right??

Well you want to have the flywheel supported by something sturdy, but it won't bend or get knocked out of balance. This is just one of those things that you do and then forget about, because it's nearly impossible to mess up.
