Here's a suggestion which I  considered back in the day: That last short bit of line with the fitting that screws into the accumulator, replace it using a braided stainless high pressure hose that you can have made up at your local hydraulic shop. That way you can have them put a swivel at the end and now, combined with the flexibility, it's a thousand times easier to screw in the fitting to the accumulator.
