    The best way to do it is to remove the lead screw, remove the apron, and then remove the carriage. If you still want to remove the QC gearbox you can do it any time after removing the lead screw.

    I can only say that my 24" has the standard back gear arrangement and that I have never seen a South Bend with a double back gear.
    Mine is a 1921 and has a 4 step pulley.

    I agree with BSCustoms, but the question is how do you hold the drill using only a 3 or 4 jaw chuck so that you can turn it?
