I bought a new neck for my bass and I wanted to put my old tuning pegs in but the holes in the headstock are a lot bigger. Is there anything I can do?

If they move around just a bit, then it won't be a problem. The retaining nuts and the tension on the strings will keep them in place. If there is a lot of movement, there is nothing you can do except have a good technician plug the tuner holes and then re-drill them to a smaller diameter to fit your new tuners.

I suggest new tuners. That's really your only option.

If your really determined, cut 4 pieces of Hardwood Dowel, then, glue around the edges (wood glue), get wooden mallet and hammer it in.
If your lacquer is defiantly sealed well, wet the Dowel and it will expand (once in).

I'm pretty sure that if there is any movement within the tuning pegs, it will cause problems with tuning stability.
