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.

I don't feel like working on anything, at this time.

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.

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.
