Default South bend lathe

How do you tell if this lathe is a heavy 10 or just a 10?

From what I see you got a Heavy 10. Light has a knurled knob in middle of headstock.

The diameter through the headstock is 1 3/8" on a heavy 10. Your serial number is stamped by the tailstock, what is the model #

I think it is 20740 R. The diameter in the headstock is about that I have not measured it yet.
