If it’s got 2 piece motion hangers, just scoot them in, drill and tap new holes, …If it’s got a one piece motion hanger, section it, scoot it in, drill and tap new holes…..as mentioned before, this stuff is not rocket surgery or brain science…..you just have to know how the materials that your working with are going to react to the tools/machines your using……die cast is a funny material, most of the times, no two pieces are of the same density or composition…..testing and sneaking up on how to work the material is a must,…..some components are hard as steel, and some are soft as butter…..sometimes when I begin a boring process, the softer castings will actually re-melt and clog any bits up, that’s when you gotta back up, and redo your process…..I’d suggest practice on some scrap parts, drilling, tapping, cutting and filing on busted broken parts to develop your techniques, …..
