Deni, the main problem with the PTO's was not mechanical wear (though
this can happen in a heavily used unit), but the sticky grease that
was originally used. The grease would harden and cause frequency jumps.

Some people just disassemble the bearings, clean and regrease. Others 
go for the full rebiuld kit, as long as they have to teardown the 
mechanism anyway.
