5K iMac hinge replacement for VESA mount compatibility?!
I‘m currently upgrading my 2017 5K iMac (CPU etc.). I have all parts disassembled and only have the aluminum housing in front of me.
I also planed to change the normal stand to VESA mount. Sadly, it seems like the original hinge does not support the old original VESA mount adapter from Apple cause the hinge is not able to flip out the housing.
Now I thought about getting an old 2011 27” iMac hinge which works with VESA mount adapter and just replace it. On the pictures the older hinge has more screw holes as the new one.
My question: Does anyone know measurements of both hinges and if the old one could fit the new iMacs holes?!

Thanks a lot in advance!
Is this a good question?
