Thanks for posting. Looks like you will need to drill a larger hole to accept the back end of the key cylinder. Your current hole looks to be too small. You could try using a round rat type file to increase the hole, as well. Take note which hole you need to use in the handle to match up to the inside mortise latch in the door. Take a look at the related video if you haven't already, it should be a big help.
