    They have high and low range. Not sure about all the levers and knobs. You can contact Black and White Trucks in JHB. They sell Samil trucks. Lots of spares and should be able to supply you with a workshop manual also. +27(11)3164980.

    Post a picture so we can see what knobs,levers you're talking about.

    I think your Samil has possibly been modified...

    Google Pon Steyn Motors in Somerset West.

    They have been buying ex-militiry trucks at SADF/SANDF auctions since the days of the round-nose "vasbyt" Bedford, through Magirus, up to the present Samils for use in the film industry, therefore the vehicles need to be in good running condition.

    Speak to Pon himself, he is a good oke and a mine of information on those things - and they have a longdrop full of any and all spares.

    Bought all my Samil spares from them. Even bought the Samil 50 from them. Excellent service.
    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    It could also be the switxh for the PTO, which is also actuated by air. The easiest will be to get the air tanks full, switch of the vehicle and get someone to sit inside the cab, while you are under the vehicle.

    Let them operate the switches one at a time, while you listen for any sounds of solenoids or parts moving. If you locate the sound you will be able to tell whether it actuates soemthing on the diff, gearbox or transfer case.

    Good luck
