South Bend 9" Model A quick change gear box cleanup

I scored a fantastic condition gearbox from a local guy. It apparently had been on a almost new lathe that tipped over breaking off the handle on one tumbler. He had purchased a new gear box to replace it (40 years ago) and put this one on a shelf. All I had to do was clean it up a little bit and put in new felt.
