Tech/Engineering
French term or phrase: perçage
In the following phrase, which comes under the heading "Servicing of bearings", sub-heading "Prise des jeux au remontage uniquement":

"Veiller à faire coïncider les perçages pour l'écoulement d'huile (éventuellement achever le pré-perçage)".

What would be the correct translation of "perçage" here? Drilling, drilled passage, cut-out,...?

TIA for any help.

Normally,
perçage === boring (through), drilling

But it is an action.
In your phrase "perçage" means the result of this action.
