Selector rod pin-anybody tried to make a new pin?

In my '76, I bought the $75 shifter rebiuld kit from bimmer parts co., it turns out none of those parts really reduced the massive play. It looks like either the pin has worn down, or the hole in the selector rod at the tranny has enlarged, because you can see a whole lot of play at that junction. Has anybody attempted to drill out the selector rod to, say, a slightly larger size, and make a new pin to fit? Thinking of using 1/4" drill bit to drill then cut the bit itself to make the pin. Thanks everybody in advance!

Yes, I did that. I didn't have to drill out the hole, I think the rod is harder than the pin. I just used some drill rod, it comes in odd sizes 32nd's of an inch. The ball joint coupling is definitely a major slop culprit.
