    They redesigned the machines after the war, the old two piece bronze bearing with shims, are pretty easy serviced.
    That looks like a nice machine!

    Some.

    Do you at least have the flat-belt step-pulley that matches the one on the spindle? Where "match" means each combo ends up with the same o/a pitchline and span so there is the same shaft centerline spacing, any ratio?

    Not a disaster if not, but if so, the options for the preceding reduction stage are easy as well as plentiful.
