    You got a lathe so you could turn and bore parts. That can/should include your spindle mount tooling. It only takes a few minutes to open a 1.5x8 backplate up to 1.625x8.

    Instead of measuring the pitch, flip the work piece around and press it against the side of the spindle threads. It should nest perfectly.

    Not too mysterious, you've got a franken-lathe. Somewhere during its life, it got upgraded. Very unlikely that a dealer did it, or that it was done anytime near the bed's manufacturing date.

    If the lathe did not have a dial originally, it won't have the holes. If you bought the dial later, it came with instructions: http://www.wswells.com/data/howto/paula_stephens/thread-dial-ATT-94.jpg...
