Use a 1/4" bushing with a guide pin. Put lipstick on the mounting holes on the router. This will atleast mark the holes for you.
Not understanding why the guides won't fit your router. The plate is much larger than the OP plate. Something doesn't add up. A pic of the router would be helpful.

"Whether active duty, retired, national guard or reserve - is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America", for an amount of "up to and including my life". That is HONOR, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it." -Author Unknown
