It sounds as if you are not looking at a crack in anything but instead are
seeing the small, sloped washer.  Check again.

The brass guide shaft is not included in the kit.  The sloped washer for
that point and one other (rear of the main shaft) are included.

It sounds like you are not sure what you are seeing.  Your description of
"acting up" is pretty vague.

Subject: [TenTec] Ten-Tec PTO rebuild kit - contents thereof...

| After using my Corsair II during Field Day, the PTO
| began to act up. The previous owner had it rebuilt by
| Ten-Tec only about 4 years ago.
| I opened it up and found that the plactic thing-a-ma-bob
| that connects/links the ferrite shaft to the "guide shaft" with
| the spiral spring, had cracked. The spring puts pressure on
| one end of this plastic linkage and that's where it cracked.
| The overall lubrication seems fine.
| Is this plastic linkage device included in the PTO parts kit?
| Do thay include that brass "guide shaft" in the Kit? It
| has a bit of wear on it.
| I could, of course, ask Ten-Tec but I would like to know in
| advance what to expect or what extras to order.
| Tnx es 73,
| Doug/WA1TUT
