Lately, we have been fielding questions about Twin Disc shaft length. Did the replacement Twin Disc, Stein Clutch, or AutoClutch HD1300D PTO you just bought come with an overly-long output shaft?

We’ve noticed that because of supply chain shortages, some people who need a new power takeoff clutch are buying whatever they can get their hands on. Sometimes they wind up with an output shaft that is too long. But not to worry. If your shaft is too long, just break out your Sawzall and cut it down in length. End of story.
