Hi all! My understanding is that I need to drill a .125" hole here. I also have to find another bearing as the original was damaged in shipping. Hopefully these are sold separately. Maybe it's a pretty novice questions, but is there a specific method of drilling this hole? More to the point, how do I ensure no metal filings get left behind in the oil passage?
Thanks for any help!

Line up with the cooler return passage and drill through only until it breaks through into the passage then stop.

You can see through that passage , just blow it out good

Those bearings are available separate, Sonnax# 96423

That worked great. I broke about a 1/4 of the bit through. I appreciate your help and the part number!
