Need help identify parts

Hey guys, Im new to the forum. I just recently purchased a new jeep. The issue I am having is that it is a mostly custom project. There are bits and pieces from a bunch of older cj5 and CJ7s. I need to identify what transmission is in and as well as the transfer case. I have some leaks. The transmission I believe is out of a 70 or 80 CJ7. Its a 4 speed trans with reverse being up to left. Tp place in reverse you have to push down onto the stick. Any ideas on these models.

Your going to need to provide pictures, as there is no simple answer. It could be a multitude of combo's. Without seeing it we would be guessing.

The end of a defining era.... JEEP R.I.P. 1941-1986

Trans identification

According to the Technical service manual for a 1980 (I have an 80 but a lot of the parts are '79) the identification is as follows.
there is a tag on the shift control housing. lacking that since you say you have to press down to get reverse, and its up and to the left that would indicate a SR-4. Also how many bolts are in your shift lever housing? the SR-4 has 4 the other 2 have 6.

R 1 3

_ 2 4

although pictures would verify this.

My first ever Resto project.

Yep, the up and left indicates the SR4. It's the only four speed offered in a CJ with reverse in that position.
