Your taper is to big for tailstock go down one size.  If it fit your headstock it is to big for tailstock.  My old 21" has a bushing that fits in the headstock to take a #4 morice taper. For what it is worth.

Thanks for your input.

I understand where you're coming from and yes backing off does eject
the taper, but even with the tailstock spindle removed from the
tailstock I can't get the chuck to seat in the taper as it hits at
the shoulder first.

Anyone else got any suggestions I really don't want to butcher the
tailstock spindle.
