The Visoflex I is too long to allow using the Elmar 4/90 lens head + some type of short focusing mount and still maintain infinity focus. I just double checked a couple of references that confirm this. The lens head of the Elmar was removable well before the Visoflex II and the OUAGO were introduced. As such, it could mounted to the COOED short focusing mount which worked with the Focoslide focusing stage. There also was an adapter - UOOWV - that allowed mounting the Elmar lens head to the Bellows I that worked with the Visoflex I, but I am sure this configuration was for close-up work only. And there were other possibilities, but none that allow mounting an Elmar 90 to a Viso I and still get infinity focus.
You may just have to break down and get a Viso II and then you'll have to get a ......... and so on.
Pentax K10D, SPII, Me Super
Canon AE1, AE1 Program
and way too much Visoflex stuff
