You don't say where you are or what type of engine you need it for but try this company. They have been in the alt fuel business for at least 50 years and dealt in adaptors for IMPCO, OHG and other products. They may still have something.

Try LG Motorgas they might be able to point you in the right direction.

Since LG Motorgas can't help the only way you'll get what you want brand new is to import it yourself from the manufacturer.

You must really want to use that OHG to go through all this trouble. Hope its still in good shape, they do wear out. The adapters are getting hard to find now. They do show up occaisionally around where I am but you usually have to buy the mixer and or vap with it. Around 350.00 - 500.00 Canadian. If desperate, they can be found.. But... the impco 425 is so readily available and similar why not go that route?

I have two brand new MM x450a and two X1 converters, they were the last 5th gen MM produced. I brought them 8 years ago. But they didn't come with any mounting adapters. So I'm searching. I have one ohg x450 on a 327 chev with adapter. trying my luck to get two new ones or two second hand ones.

I have located several of the adaptor you need. It will change the X450 so it will have a 425 mounting dimensions. Interested? They will have to be shipped out of Canada.

This is one area I have had trouble figuring out. I consider myself fairly literate on computers but inserting images in forums has been a real challenge to me. I've gone to some of the sites mentioned and I have yet to find a proper set of instructions detailing how to do it. I'm going to try again. I should be able to do it. Not sure why forums don't allow a direct upload straight from a posters computer. Security issues maybe. I'll take another stab at it.
