What kind of drill bit do you use? do you drill a pilot hole.

On the grounds that a picture says 1,000 words I have gone back into my own stock photos for you.
In the after photo you can see that I neglected to put a dowel in the first hole so one capacitor does not go in perfectly.
There is plenty of conductive cooling to the outside of the can.
Before you start you need to check that the old can is deep enough to accommodate the length of the new caps and use some kind of depth gage such as a mark on the drill bit.
Leaving the original can in the chassis means that from the top side it looks totally original with no tool marks on the can.
