This is the only Toploader and shifter I've owned and have experience with, so sorry I can't give advice on mounting orientation. I just used the standard Comp Plus shifter for '65, and it came with the black adapter plate. The only unusual thing about my shifter is the small adapter where the shift handle mounts. I got this from David Kee so I could use a factory shift handle.
Regarding the input shaft, mine probably looks different because I cut off the pilot sleeve on the bearing retainer...had to modify it for my hydraulic throw-out bearing.
