Turn slow and hold your shop-vac near the bit. Works for me quite often on process lines in the plant.

You could also put some grease on the bit and go slow... it catches most of the swirly chips in the grease and prevents them from dropping in. This works best with a steady hand, slow drill speed, and a SHARP bit -- the aluminum chips will stay longer and more intact this way.

Stick a garden hose in the cap of the radiator. Have someone hold some rags around it and turn it on low. The water passage you are drill will have a steady stream of water coming out. That should push out most chips. And think how long your bit will last.:flipoff2:
