That part for my BJ40 (because I don't know any details about yours) is 36343-60010 and called SHOE, FRONT DRIVE SHIFT LINK LEVER (FOR DIRECT TYPE)

And it seems to be still available and around the $10 mark

Our BJ40s are the same year (and both Australian-market too) so that part number should definitely be good for you too then.

Mustard yellow is one of my favorite colours. (I'd say it IS my favorite colour except for the fact that mine is Sky Blue so of course I've got to have loyalty to what I've got! :D)

DIRECT TYPE is Toyota's terminology not mine... but I'm guessing they are using it to distinguish our "manual-4WD-select" cruisers from those where 4WD is selected by means of electrical switches and vacuum actuators.

PS. All I can hear is fireworks being let off as I type this reply because Guy Fawkes is being celebrated here. You're a few hours behind us so I suppose you're still in daylight.

Here's a photo I took of the harbour here about an hour ago ....

How about posting a pic of your mustard BJ40?
