IF you have a portable drill you can acquire a hole saw at Ace hardware store.
1st cut a 1/2" plug. Then place that plug in the 3/4" hole saw, this will keep it centered.
Now you can enlarge the hole.Then with a new backing plate on the inside you can install your new thru-hull valve.
There are some other steps. But this is the gist of the procedures.
