Is it standard to take a drill to the bar and remove the threading?
This is the bar: http://www.skiesunlimited.net/index.php?ProductID=876
, recomended by a highly thought of (and still highly thought of

It appears you may have metric type William Optics type dimension rings...(do they measure up like these
?)...that use M6 screws & 60/80mm between screws.
You can buy metric Losmandy type DUP universal dovetails from ADM
to fit these measurements. Just use the pull down tab to see the metric versions available.
If these are indeed the measurements you needed (on your rings & dovetail plate) then you may have been incorrectly advised.
