I would make a remark about a gay drive shaft being acceptable but someone would probably take offence. :lol:
The last winch drive shaft that I purchased was from Midwest but that was some time ago.

My trans shaft is not compatible with my cis winch and PTO. Take that, diversity....

John

May not help, but Midwest military has a repop shaft for around 300, different design than original. I made one from a tractor implement pto shaft with a bushing from tractor supply on the winch side and used the original rear yokes on the pto side. All I had to start was the rear yokes mounted to the pto.

There are 3 different shafts for the M-37, one is shared with the WC. Not sure of the difference.

Hi,
Thanks all for the information. I found one at Midwest Military. I can't say enough good about Jon Bizal. He is the consummate professional.
