    On a 203 and a 205 yes you can. No advantage no disadvantage. SM465 manual can run a PTO also.

    PTO on manual tranny gives you a single speed.

    PTO on t-case gives you as many speeds as your manual tranny has... plus reverse.

    Of course, a PTO unit can be had as a simple engage/disengage, or a forward/disengage/reverse.

    This is sort of off the subject, but I have a PTO winch that I have been trying to gett rid-of, I do not know what LBS range it is, but the cable on it is 1" approx diameter, it has all of it drive lines, it just needs the control box that mounts is the cab. Mounted on a '73-'75 style bumper. I can post a photograph if you are intrested.
