I have just removed a flywheel from a VP V6, and when removing the clutch I broke one of the dowels off the flywheel... (is that what there called? The 3 metal bits sticking out that the clutch holds onto) I also noticed that one of the dowels is missing completely, so now there is only one left on the flywheel. My question is, will this be a problem only having one left on there?
Cheers guys.

should get them replaced i think theyre mainly for centering the clutch but theyd probably have some holding effect aswell

They should be removable as most clutch places will remove them in order to "face" the wheel.
Maybe approach a clutch specialist to find replacements?

Oh ok then, well I have to get the flywheel machined anyway.

Set of thongs
they are just a standard solid dowel would be pretty easy to find some from a bolts place. they work on a slight interference fit
