For example, will a shift lever from a 1995 Nissan pickup work?

Try one of your 71B shifters on the dogleg, it should fit.
The last year any 71B was used was '86.5 or half way through the '86 model year on the 720 and the S12. After this only the 71C was used and that shifter is totally different. The A, B or C in the transmission descriptor is the style of shifter used on it.

There is a 86 pickup at a P-n-P near me.
It turned out that it was a 1986.5 truck. Rats.

Daniel, I have a couple early shift levers and a new round port exhaust gasket you can have, unfortunately I do not have the bushings for the shift levers.

It's Wednesday March 21, 2018. On Monday, this week, I decided to clean the five speed transmission I got with the L-20-B I got earlier this year. I started to clean inside the bell housing with some solvent, here the bell housing is about half done.
I just used a brush, and some solvent in a soup can, and let it drain into the bigger pan.
This is after solvent cleaning.
When I first brought the engine and transmission home, i did pressure wash it, but it still looked like this.
Post 84, on page 5 of this thread shows how I used this cleaner.
If you do not want to go back there, I scraped heavy crud with a old knife. Then I sprayed dirty areas of the transmission with the Purple Power in an old spray bottle, and let that sit for about 5-10 minutes, while using a small brush to loosen crud. Then I pressure washed the transmission, and resprayed with the Purple Power cleaner on the dirty spots, used the small brush again, and pressure washed again. However, by cleaning the inside of the bell housing with solvent first, it cleaned up with the Purple Power easier, and put a lot less oily crud on the ground outside where I pressure the transmission.

Top of transmission after cleaning it.
Bottom of transmission after mostly cleaning it. There are still some dirty spots.
Still some more dirty spots.
After another round of Purple Power, and pressure washing.
The previously dirty spots.
Some areas on the transmission I used an old 3M Scotchbright pad to scrub the transmission, and in a few areas I also used some 220 grit sandpaper. I kept both the Scotchbright and the sanndpaper wet with the Purple Power, and pressure washed the transmission again.

Yesterday, in the late morning, I went up to Wayno's house. He had some extra shift levers. I got shift levers for both the 1980 720 five speed, and the Dogleg five speed transmission.
I also got a Dogleg shift knob.
and a knob for the five speed.
Wayno also spent some time poking around in some spare parts, and he got bushings and washers to take up almost all the slop in the shifter on the Dogleg transmission.
Thank You Wayno, A lot!
