    4.5HP will be overkill for the lathe, you’re even more likely to damage something if you have a crash.
    The three phase motor your lathe has is 1.5HP or 3HP depending what speed you have it set on.

    Now I have a mill I can start thinking about making this steady I swapped with @badabec fit this lathe.

    I need to measure the angle of the V and decide whether the steady should sit on both V’s or just one.

    Scrap that the V is 90 so easy enough to do in the mill

    Looking good, that's one less thing I'm not tripping over any more. Now to get rid of the Acvoake vice

    Fit onto the rear v to enable the saddle to move past the steady.

    The steady is too wide to let the saddle pass in any case.

    You'll find that a serious hinderance in use. You need to reduce the width.
