You need to find a means to center your drill bit in the starter.The holes in the starter are larger than the drill .

Secure the starter in position, and use a suitable size transfer punch through the starter bolt holes to center punch the hole location.

understood ! Vocabulary ... i have to study !

Nice job!

it might be the picture, but it looks a little close. Did you manually extend the starter pinion to ensure proper mesh with the ring gear? There are shims available that allow you to adjust the distance if it is too close. You can use a screwdriver to extend the pinion and check the mesh.
