Need help to properly identify driveline components.

Guys,

I bought a 1981 CJ7 that I am beginning to think may have had a sordid past. I'd like to figure out if the motor is original and also positively identify exactly what transmission, transfer case and axles are in it. It's the straight six and five speed. Can anyone point me to picture threads of how to identify the various transmissions and transfer cases and axles?

Thanks.

Well for one thing the hood has that little indention on the bottom edge of the drivers side above the fender which I believe was for mounting a siren on army Jeeps. I don't recall the mid 80's CJ's having that options but I could be wrong.
