    You may have to get some pipe and have a machine shop make them for you.

    are you taking this one apart or another rad like it? if you could handle the rad moving left, you could use standard nipples and unions . . . ? same thing if you could handle rad moving left less, you can get 4" all day long which i assume you know because you chock up the sizes you need as unusual. but, if you could spare an inch to the left, you could use the 4" for the shorts and then a coupling and standard nipple to match up with 4" L/R nipples to make the 12" you would need for the top in the setup as shown.

    I have had machine shops turn R/L for me when needed. Left hand thread bushings, straight threads etc.
    not very often but sometimes.
