Fit ML7 cross slide on ML8

Hi, I have ordered a base plate to fit an ML7 cross slide to my ML8 ebay 190959162842.
What do I need to know about this conversion please?
Has anyone an ML7 Cross Slide available please?

OK - the plate is correct to adapt the ML8.
My issue is that the saddle sleeve nut which normally attaches the chisel rest is too long for this conversion plate.
Has anyone got a short saddle sleeve nut available please?
Oh, and Im still after a compound slide ML7, Super7 or ML8.
