Can someone explain the 2 levers on the tranny? What gear is where? Also I see a couple that have kits to make a top shift, someone called COR? And Sheldon? Thanks Tom

Side lever which moves forwards/backwards is the same as moving your gear lever up/down. Top lever that moves side side is the same as moving your gear lever side/side.

Shift pattern on the truck is like this:
R 2 4
1 3 5

I don't remember which way the levers work for each but you'll work it out pretty quick.

Thanks, I did save the whole shifter so far. Would like to find anyone with a kit or self made top shifter.

No I had not seen it. So many Thanks. I am hoping to get a starter from seller, if not will buy new and try to fire it up. Has been sitting for years but roll over.

That was from an Australian called Sheldon. He sold them through AULRO.
It is a landrover specific conversion as Australia got a lot of landrovers (military and civilian) in the 1980's and 90's using the 4BD1 (non turbo) with landrovers LT95 4 speed gearbox and integrated 2 speed transfer.
That kit has an adapter ring to fit the landrover specific engine bellhousing and a welded adapter on the tail to fit a landrover LT230 4wd transfer box.

He had a lot of issues with the fabricated tail housing breaking and the adapter shafts inside breaking. Likely from material choice, heat-treatment and design details. I used a different design and steel in my adapter shaft and mine hasn't broken.

I am not looking to add a transfer case. Just hoping to find a easy set up to shift the tranny. This swap is for a TimberJack skidder. I want to get rid of a 353 Dertroit. The transfer case is on the rear half. The other idea is to use the 4 speed w/ reverser on the Detroit and attach it to the Isuzu. Using the MSA 5D seems like less problems other than lack of spare parts.Thanks for the ideas and help.
