I forgot to say earlier that the Tech Bulletins, with respect to the spindle bearings, apply only to those machines with Timken, not babbit, bearings. However as your machine doesn't have babbit bearings, no harm done.
And you will need to join the _Projects sub-group in order to have access to files.
The short answer to your earlier question is that end float should be zero. Tapered roller bearings are normally operated with preload of some amount. The Tech Bulletin tells you how to get the proper end float.

Thanks by end play Im think the same as if you were checking the end play after assembly of an engine crank. how you place a dial indicater at the end and pull. I have a 12x36 101.07403. dont know the production year I will find that out after i remove the bearings. Thanks for the reply. and I will check the file sections for assembli instructions.

The only end play i would think about if i understand you correctly would be the play or slack in the in the bearings.
that is adjustable i would go as tight as i could so the bearings are still free.
There is a paint chart in the file, I would use Sherwin-Williams industrial paint. Any idea what the original paint looked like.

Hi everyone. Im looking to rebuild my lathe.when I reassemble the headstock. Is there endplay that I need to know. What about torque specs for reassembly. Also what type of paint is good that wil be durable and resistent to the oils and cutting fluids.
