Default Rear D60 disc brake swap question (regarding wheel studs)

I figured this would be an easy night. Push out the old wheel studs, place the disc brake on the rear of the full floater hub and reinstal the hub/rotor. Bolt on caliper brackets and caliper and bam, done.

Not exactly.

I pressed out the stock wheel studs and when I went to reinstal the wheel studs I cracked the rotor. The dia of the rotor is about .645" and the dia of the knurled part of the wheel stud is .675". I thought that was about right amount of interference, but aparently not. Do anyone know if I need different wheel studs or do I need to open up the stud holes on the rotor or??? I figure I could open up the rotor holes to .656" but I don't have an 21/32 drill bit in my arsenal and no place around me has one either....

Plenty of people have done this swap, what is the trick?

I just used the stock studs. No mods needed at all.

I took the wheel studs to my bench grinder and made them fit...

but the saga continues... bolted up the brackets and they must be the wrong offset... The bracket puts the caliper way too close to the rotor.
