Delta Lathe with Metal Cutting Equipment

I bought this lathe at auction for a wood lathe but it has a metal cutting carriage setup but of course no screw setup. Ways are flat on top and all cast iron. Has 4 feet to bolt down with. Has Morse taper on both ends with hollow drive shaft. There is a divider pin set up on head stock. Tail stock has a indicator that tell how far the tail stock moving part has moved in or out. It is about 40 in between centers and 5 1/2 in center to bed swing. I can't find any thing on this thing. It has never been used for wood as the tool rest are still brand new. I got a big box of metal tooling with it. The drive has a jack shaft with a large pulley on one end and cone on other. Would be much too slow for wood as set up. Any information would sure be enjoyed on this thing.
