For some time the tacho drive on Perkins engines run anticlockwise the solution was backwards rev counters. Remember while Perkins are without doubt a great engine they are English after all.

I have a little bit of Pommy stuff in the back yard from tractors mowers outboard and stationary engine and other stuff as well. The only thing that runs backwards here is the Aussie made farm pumper engine. Why, I don't know but it is different and not many people pick up on it when you start it up cranking over wnti-clockwise.

You can get a little plastic reverser box for cables,not very expensive............plenty of reverse rotation motors .....lots of marine applications used matched pair ........GM 71 s the whole motor can be reversed so everything is on opposite sides of the motors,and one runs in reverse.........the Smiths tacho is the expensive one ,......did you know the WW2 Smiths pocket watch ,used to sell at the disposals for 7/6d,is now worth $2000.
I think its a PTO for the Rockwell Cloverleaf transfer case of the 1600 4x4 inters.....for sure AB to D liner,maybe earlier.............a very hard part to find ,if you need one.........I suspect it may be a Powa auto,made by Sonnerdale Richardson /David Brown.......not 100 % sure ......long time ago .

It looks very much like a transfer case PTO not a side PTO off a gearbox. I think John might be in the ball park. There were very similar designs for everything from Jeeps to heavy trucks. I have two on my shelf from Jeeps (WW2 and later FC-170 forward control ) that look very similar. Most transfer cases in the day had a plate to remove and fit these units.
I used to grab the IH pto s whenever I saw them........if you want to fit a centre chassis mount winch under the tray in a 4x4 1600 ,you need that pto ...and I always had one ,so I got the job at my price......only place they came from was the electric companies ,and telecom/gpo......I imagine they were very costly new ,being both Powauto and a small demand item.
