Careful with those gears! There are more than a few lathes around that are missing teeth on the back gear from the impact load of someone whacking a pry bar clamped in the chuck. If your chuck has a ring around the back with holes or slots for a spanner, it’s probably a "L" type mount. Post a picture if you can or look up pictures of lathe chuck mounts and we can go from there.

If you have the long taper you need the spanner for the nut!
There are several sources for those.....
