Those lathes came with wrenches to remove the drive center, put one on spindle and other on drive center. Unless I am wrong cannot remove the live center in the tailstock. That style lathe did come with diferent size spindles and threads, so just measure to see what you actually have. Just from looking at your picture spindle looks like is 1” x 8 TPI which makes buying a chuck or additional faceplates little easier. The spindle is solid on those lathes so don’t worry about Morse tapers.

Good luck with it.
