Mechanics, there are two (2) different configurations of power takeoff (PTO) transmissions for FMTVs; an old style PTO transmission and a new style PTO transmission.
        
If your old PTO is working, there’s no need to replace it. Just be aware that it’s no longer being produced.

The fit and the function of the old and new PTOs are basically the same, except the new PTO doesn’t have the pressure lube line.
