You are talking about the arbor … has a #2 morse taper for your tailstock, and (probably) a JT33 taper for the chuck.

Just take it off the lathe, retract the jaws all of the way into the chuck, put the end of the chuck on a block of wood and WHACK the tapered end of the arbor with a wooden mallet or rubber hammer.
