Can you remeasure the pilot hole after you clean it up with some sand paper and see if it will measure 1.848? Some times the old converter will cause a lip to form on the edge of the crank. I have had to use a 3m sanding disk to get the hole cleaned up enough to get the converter to go into the hole. They only make two size pilots for the c6 the 1.848 and the 1.375
