If the locknut (part no.16) is what locks part no.20 from turning it looks to me that you could still rotate the actuator 90 degrees and compensate by turning part no.20, 90 degrees also. or drill and tap new holes for the guard. It might require a little grinding if clearances inside get tight. Five hundred bucks would buy a little fuel.
