    Looks like you pop off the 4 shafts and drop the apron- are there 4 Allen bolts on the front top side of the saddle?

    Before you go too far, what’s the issue?

    yes the bottom rod is a Feed trip and it does have the 4 cap screws that holds it to the top plate.

    The shafts have a coupling with a taper pin at the headstock end, easy to get to

    Not sure what size lathe you have, mines a 16” (24 gap) and the apron is really heavy. Remove two cap screws diagonally from each other and put a piece of threaded rod in the missing bolt holes, put a washer and nut on the rod and snug it up, then remove the other two cap screws and lower the apron with the nuts.
