Any thread dial gauge for a 9-13 will work. Not the later, '50s 9s nor 10Ks. What do you mean you have no mounting holes? Maybe they are just painted over but they are there for sure.
You are just making stuff up now- Many 13" lathes have 6 TPI
leadscrews, so you want a 24 tooth gear instead of 32 used on the
smaller lathes. Also, the apron will not be drilled for a dial if the
lathe never had one.
