Be careful with the heat because it is cast iron, do not heat it up to it turns red. The tail stock should have clamp under it hold it on, start taking it apart piece by piece. From what I see in the pic the head has bearing caps start removing them. Do not sand on the ways use a wire bush because if you remove metal then they will have to be re-machine to be flat. So do it slow and take apart, remember one when are hitting it cast iron will break it is not steal.
