    Years ago I was playing with MBs and that crowd. During those times, in a many-parts-swap, I acquired an F134 bolted to a transmission with controls on the driver's side and throttle linkages on the passenger side. It does not match my current '62 CJ5 and I am not familiar with all the Jeep family that might have used this combination. The owners only knew that it was not from an L-head. Does this pair of traits (linkage and side control transmission) belong to any model/vintage? Jeepster? Truck? Other?

    The engine is under wraps and is frozen but I might be able to get more information if it is necessary.

    Thanks for your collective expertise!

    Postal CJ 3b or 5? Would have been 2wd.

    Thanks! Is that why the accelerator linkage is on the right?

    Right hand drive for postal vehicles so yes. If you dig around on the net you'll find info on this, the same setup was used for jeeps assembled in places such as Australia. The civvy bellhousing actually has a cutout on both sides to facilitate the clutch fork setup for either configuration.

    Years back, I got an F134 out of a military forklift that had all the throttle linkage on the right side of the engine. It was actually a simpler system system, but still had a bellcrank mounted on the side of the block.
