I have a South Bend lathe with a sloppy tailstock barrel. I would like to replace the key that keeps it from rotating, but there appears to be no way to do it. Can anyone help me?

I just went through this repair/replace of this pin on my 1944 SB 10L, including repairing the sloppy screw and it turned out rather nicely.

Dont know if all SB tail stock are the same but -- FWIW,I did a post on another forum about how I went about it...
