As long as the pin goes in smoothly & is not sloppy it will not have extra stress. You are correct in thinking that if it went to someone that does this type of work all the time both ears would be cut off & new ones installed then line bored. I just assumed that he didn't have that type of equipment so the next best thing would be 2" diameter wheels on a grinder or a good die grinder. That would be the very time consuming part of the job that I mentioned.
