...you also need a bubble flare at the cyl end and an inverted flare at the 
flex hose connection.

yep..had to make my own for the same reason (NLA) My issues were two fold 
though. On my roto setup I stayed with the rear Spit style connections so 
had to custom bend the cyl hard pipes to come around the back side, rather 
than just down and forward. I welded a tab to the backplate to support the 
interconnect as stock and the flex lines run up like stock Spit lines.
