Changing story points to hours

We would like to estimate in hours rather than story points, but I don't know how to configure this in JIRA

Go to the board configuration then choose Estimation in the vertical menu. In the Estimation Statstic field choose Original Time Estimate

Works perfectly for issues that did not previously have any estimates associated with them.  However, I have issues in the backlog that have original time estimate value assigned to them that I want to switch to story points.  When I change the board configuration to story points the original time estimate is still preserved.  I want to over write those w/ story points, any idea if/how this can be done?
