Does all 6 in line machine heads fit in to all kinds of stratocaster?
I bought a set of it and i cant fit them in to my strat because the tuning pegs are too short. Or am i doing it wrong?

Thanks

Pictures would help. There are slight differences between 6 in a line headstocks, mostly the thicknesses of headstocks (which usually aren't standard, and vary from company to company) and the diameter of the holes in the headstock (which are standard and usually come in Kluston-like vintage sizing and modern sizing ).

I replaced the chrome one with the black one




I use a strat copy.
It does not state any brand of the tuner

Tuners vary alot. Shaft size, where the little line up screw goes. Theres not really a universal replacement. Unless you go with same brand and model as what was in it.

the hole isn't big enough, thats all, drill the hole to the sieze of the largest part of the cylendar and you should be golden. Do you see the hump on the black one where the chrome one stayed the same diameter the whole way?

No, don't drill a through hole - counterbore the existing hole.

Edit:

Ahhh, you were right - I just woke up and I wasn't thinking straight lol.

TS: Find the diameter of the larger part on the shaft (if you notice the top has a smaller diameter than the bottom) and then drill the holes to that diameter.
