Hi, Off the top of my head , your current reverse idler works off third gear on the layshaft and gives you a reverse somewhere between second and third forward speed.

There is a reverse idler fitted to JCB diggers with the Leyland skid unit that runs off the second gear on the layshaft and gives a much slower reverse.

Fitting is not easy and sometimes requires a full strip of the gearbox depending on gearbox casting variation!
