so you actually drilled the black mounting holes larger so that the original bottom bracket plate would fit better, I just had a look at your picture on page 2 with the mounting holes on the bottom side slightly larger.
To be honest i think i will just do aceb's trick and switch the mounting plates from top to bottom saves any more drilling and me messing it up, my dish is the same as yours so i just took the AZ/EL mount completely off and bolted the plate straight onto the back of the dish using the supplied bolts which are just the right fit.
I just drilled two holes a little back from the original ones. I did this before attaching the motor to the dish, so I don't know if I I'd had tried to use the original holes if clearance between the dish and plate would have been compromised.
The mentioned holes in the pic possibly a perspective illusion.
