South Bend Lathe Model SBL400 Parts List

I recently purchased a used metal lathe: A South Bend model SBL-400, from Jones Machinery in Cinncinatti.

Unfortunately, I did not have an opportunity to inspect the lathe very closely until now, and there are too many things wrong with it to make much use of it. It’s been used hard over the years, and the cross-slide skips. There’s some sort of collet holder wedged into the spindle and I’m not sure how to remove it. The foot-break won’t engage. Etc.

It’s a good model, but this one would be dangerous to attempt to operate, and I’d have to sink a lot of money into repair.

As part of the purchase, I bought a parts list that I couldn’t find anywhere online in digital form. Here is the parts list for anyone else out there lucky enough to have an SBL-400 in better working order:
