I assume this is a lathe.

Can't you figure out the pitch by engaging the half-nut, then follow down a wooden dowel or other with a pencil on the carriage? Measure the pitch of the pencil line over several inches. Repeat for all settings. Make up a chart or label.

You may also be able to find a photo or other online that shows the panel.

Doesn't answer your question, but might be of interest - a parts book covering the 1340F :-
