Ok so I did some searches about the fairey od unit and from what I read it sounds like that unit mounts to the rear of transfer case? And it makes it where you can't use the pto. Mine is in front of the transmission and the from pto shaft is hooked up. Am I not understanding this or do I have some other unit. Thank you

PICS ADDED So I pulled out the trans on my new to me 66 fj and I think this is a ranger over drive. Any one know for sure it this is a ranger unit from the early seventies. What is your opinion of this unit. Can I still get parts for it if need be. Thanks brian

Wow that looks like the oldest Ranger I've ever seen. The old old cast iron case and pan don't look the same as a "modern" Ranger III, but the size and shifter look the same as newer aluminum case units. Anxious to hear if others have seem these old cases before.

This is a newer model Ranger III. Advance adapters have service available manuals online. Don't know about that model.

Where did the OD shifter install, I like the looks of that. For that matter one could easilly convert a PTO shifter to a nice OD shifter. I need to come up with something better than what came with it.
