    Default Gearbox Identification Help Please?

    Good day to you all

    Can you guys please help me identify this gearbox? It is in a 1992 Toyota Surf LN130 - but the original gearbox was an automatic. Now it has this...

    It looks like a toyota gearbox. The transfer lever is behind the gear lever if that helps?

    As you can see, i need to get another speedo drive gear. this one was modified to work with the electronic speedo (which obviously is no longer the case).

    Looks like a W56 from a SFA Hilux
    It is not what you buy its what you build.

    OK, did a bit more searching and came across these links below. I think it might be a G52 box (please correct me if I'm wrong), due to the fact that the filler plug is just below the gear lever - same as in the G52 picture from Marlin Crawler.
    The G56 filler plug is in the front housing part?

    Also, on the left hand side of the gearbox, the reverse light switch is just forward of the lower plug (the ones with the spring and ball behind it).

    You could be right. Very difficult to identify Toyota boxes. The G52, W56, R151 are all look a like. They differ in size and some small details. Not easy to identify from a Pic if you does not have a top view
