Default Reaming depth (sierra uprights)

Iv'e just reamed the uprights with the reamer from axminster tools however I was wondering how deep it should go.
At the moment there are about 2-3 turns past the top of the nylock, should that be ok for iva ect?
Cheers

If you look at the ball joints you should see 1-2mm of straight after the taper. I reamed the hole to have this straight section just showing, with the balljoint pushed into the hole, not tightened.
I read somewhere this is the correct position, and it all seems to fit ok.
Hopefully I've got it right!!

remember you have to bolt your wingstays on to top of that nyloc so you need the threads sticking out quite a bit more

Cheers ash, however i'm having to do it by hand as the reamer is 19mm diameter and won't fit in my 13mm chuck (I don't have a lathe).

took me about 15 minutes for eachside by hand, just keep checking that you don,t go too far,
whilst turning the reamer just keep downwards pressure on it so that it is actually cutting.
