Since you have the locking bolts and indentations in the shaft, I don't see why you need such a tight shaft/flange fit. I would advise that the two go together fairly easily (obviously not loosely) and that you use NeverSeeze on everything, so you don't have this problem again. Be sure to have the machinist drill small holes in the locking bolts for the seizing wire.
