WTD: Shift Linkage LT230 Defender Style R380

WTD: Shift Linkage LT230 Defender Style (R380), see attached pictures...
Will consider complete assemblies, but mainly need the perpendicular rod from top to bottom that connects to the shifter at the top and the diff lock mechanism at the bottom.
This is different from the LT77 (at least early ones).

Note the Round shift rod coming out of the shifter assembly unlike the RR & Disco rod that is slotted (see next post).

I went through the exercise of trying to modify a RR Disco rod (ZF automatic)which I couldn't get to work properly.

The attached photos show why the RR Disco ZF style LT230 shift assembly won't work with a defender style R380.

From memory the manual trans one is flat steel and has a bend in it to fit correctly..

Another one of those "why did they change that" moments.....

Have gotten a few PMs from people analyzing the pictures and here are aa few FYIs.
In post 1, am told that the shifter is from a LT77 setup because the shaft that slides side to side is round and not notched on the end.

Am told that the top shifter on the R380 and ZF automatics will interchange and may be the same between Defender style vehicles and Disco/R380 models.

If this is the case, it's possible to swap over everything from a ZF setup less the perpendicular rod (FTC4095) which as Shayne suggests is still available.

End result: order a FTC4095 and use everything else from a ZF setup.

Thanks for the input everyone.
