Shucks, you'll have at LEAST 80% of that bushing left after drilling - without having to size it tight to the new bolt. You could bugger up the drilling, egg out the hole and it would STILL be fine!

Nothing to worry about there, just take it easy with the drill - they aren't too happy at taking out just a little so it tends to "bite" and jam up on you if you go too fast....

Luck!

Make her happy!

Had another thought after shutting down the 'puter here, if you don't have the right drill bit handy you COULD manage that little bit with a file (slow) or a die grinder (fast, takes more care).

Had to do just that myself B4 to MAKE the right bushing when needed...

MacGuyver it as necessary....
