If I were going to ever do it, I would just eyeball things and convert in my head on the fly. I steal borrow stuff from all over and I never worry about what an exact conversion would be, I just do it on the fly and whatever I come up with will just have to do unless I decide after using it for a while that I need to tweak it a bit one way or the other. I think it falls under, don't sweat the small stuff.

That does look pretty cool! Like The Perilous Dreamer says, just wing it. Covert whatever is in there to the nearest OD&D equivalent, and away you go. The beauty of OD&D is that you (well, I, anyway!) don't have to worry so much about game balance - if the characters are too stupid to be tricky, or at least to run if all else fails, they die.
I have to say, that's a lot easier to do with 5E than with any other edition (including AD&D, if it involves all those rules like weapons vs. armour that I never grokked). There is much less to 5E core than to most other "new" editions.
But can you really trust a company called "Hydra Coopoerative"?
