Spindle adaptor/Nova Precision Midi

>I just bought a new lathe, and the headstock spindle is 1 x 8 TPI. I had a Nova Precision Midi chuck for my old lathe, that is a fixed 3/4 x 16 TPI.

Is there a way to mount that chuck to the new lathe? I have seen the PSI adapters, but I'm not sure if there may be any issues with runout, strength, etc.

Should I just try to sell the chuck and start over?
