The best way to ID that machine is to get the 3 lines of code that is stamped into the bell housing - just above and behind the starter.
You'll likely have to scrape some crud and paint off to read them.
Click the link below for info that explains where to look and what the three lines of code mean.
It is the second line of code that will tell us the most info.
I'm thinking you are looking at a 4500 as those commonly used the 4X4 power reversing trans.
The middle line of code on a 4500 - diesel - power reversing trans will read something like 4(or D on the late ones) then 5011F
