The LT95 remained in Australia to late 1986 at least in the Isuzu engined
110s and much later in the similarly engined Perentie military Landrovers
in the LT95A form (ruggedised with taper roller bearings replacing some
ball bearings). So the one he is looking for diagrams of will be the LT95.
The five speed gearbox may have appeared earlier in the V8, and appeared by
the end of 1986 in the Isuzu engined variant where it is reputed not to
stand up very well, due to this engine's ability to provide high torque at
very low rpm, with resulting high impact loading when "lugged".
