If you remove the locking pin, it doesn't mean the cylinder will turn.
It just means that if it doesn't turn, you can still pull out the cylinder without having to turn it.

Normally, you have to turn the cylinder with the key before you can remove the cylinder.

Again, try my prior instructions before you drill.
It might save you some time if it works.
