Yeah the drilling was just to knock the dowels out the front side (well, technically the rear) of the old flywheel. I just used a BFH to knock them into the new one. The press fit seems to have held them quite nicely. Job is finished, the homemade alignment tool worked brilliantly.

I have a feeling our definitions of "big lathe" might differ slightly but if you wanna compare size....
