They're not all the same. It depends on how early your SII box is. the
Intermediate shaft was uprated as it had a tendancy to fail, and the
ratios were changed slightly on the next revision. If your main
gearbox is Suffix C or later (vehicles built after March 1964) the you
should be fine to swap them.
If you have a Suffix A or B gearbox then forget it, the A box has
weaker intermediate/layshafts and the B gearbox has the wrong transfer
case ratios, which will not match the SIII gearbox ratios.
