Looks like I will have to re-tap the lever cap screw hole if I want to go with a Hock chipper then. If I am ONLY going to be putting the Hock Chipper on my PreVBM #418, then it is probably worth it.

I just went out and checked some measurements. The drill tap hole is 7/32in as measured by my sticking a 7/32 (0.21875in.) drill bit in the hole. And the average (of 6-checked) of the lever cap screw body diameter is 0.2677in. (L=.2645 & H=.2715). SO there is no going back since the 9/32in completely eliminates the OEM screw by size.
