This looks quite a bit like your lathe. Dated 1932

Check out the photo index for pictures of the same lathe . The headstock threads are probably 1”X8 and morse taper2 on both ends. Best to Chang the bearings on a machine that old. Won’t cost much and the lathe will last a lifetime.
I strongly suggest finding a turning club. Turners are glad to help and will save you time, money and potential bloodshed. Most clubs offer beginner courses or at least mentoring.
