Ed Foote,

Any chance you could edit your post with the huge continuous word starting with "wire/cut/feed/bend/.."

Just put a few spaces in it or something.

You've completely messed up the page layout in this thread and made it unreadable on a small screen.

Drill out the hole for the next size larger pin.
If you luck out you may scrounge up a matched spare oversize pin with the 2.0 head -Larudee style.
Try drilling with a slightly modified jobber bit. Grind off the leading cutting edges, let the drill pull itself into the hole, hold the driver firm and spin it just a few revs to let the flutes do the cutting and back it out.
least likely to bugger up the hole.

If nothing works you could glue a Delignit dowel , the diameter of the bushing is enough . In case of open block this is not a discrete solution , of course..

Here's a nice piece of Pin-Block that was drilled at .256"

It's never had any pins in it.

I've driven four #2 pins in.

#1 pin was driven in prior to touching the chicken.

#2, #3, and #4 were driven in after touching the chicken.

At this point pin #1 turns very smoothly as it holds about 180 inch pounds

When applying torque to the other three pins I get up to about 140 inch pounds then they suddenly jump below 100 inch pounds until I stop turning them.

Might mix up some of the stuff that Zsazsa Gabor used on Green Acres to make pancakes with. If it could be used as a head gasket on their old truck, surely it will make an old worn pin block work like new again.

Add a bit of lemon washing up liquid to the red wine and remove with water?
