Default Keezer collar faucet holes......what size?

My keezer collar is almost complete. All I need to do is drill the holes for the faucets. The only problem is that Fedex keeps delaying my shipment of shanks and I'm getting impatient. I want to get it done this weekend, so I'd just like to know what size I should drill the tap holes. It's a 4 1/8" shank. Can't find any info on the diameter for this particular one. Does 7/8" sound right?

If i remember correctly i used a 1" hole. I think the shank itself is between 7/8'' and 1'' but the hole covers that come on the shank will cover up any gaps.
