    Are you asking if you can install the PTO portion without hooking it up? If so, yes you can. It just bolts to the side of the 465. (look at the case, you'll see the plate on either side, about 7 bolts?)

    My dad has a PTO winch on his truck (465 as well) and you have to pull the cable to "engage" the PTO driveshaft. I would assume the cable pulls a gear into contact with another gear that is turned by the transmission.

    The bolt up looks fairly simple, it's just one piece that bolts on in place of the plate. A gasket and you should be good to go.

    I've got a PTO and sm465/205. You will have to do a couple of mods to get the drive shaft to the winch including notching a cross member and the addition of at least one pillow block. Mine is not a hydraulic winch though. Maybe you're going to put a pump on the PTO? Mine is gear driven and it comes off the Xfer case, not the tranny. I have a 205. Took some pics. It's not perty but it works...

    Yeah, my dad cut a hole or notch in his frame to clear the driveshaft for it.

    this is going on a 465 in my 86.. so if i can install it and just let it set there it would be kind of cool.. just waiting to find out about a shifter, etc for it.. i didnt realize that the PTO's used a driveshaft to propel whatever they were powering..

    PTO boxes can serve several puposes, and they are geared to that application. if you are looking to use a PTO to power a hydraulic pump, they are made with a splined shaft that matches your pump and the pump will bolt right to the PTO box. make sure you do some of your homework and calculate how fast you need the PTO to spin to power your hydraulics without having to rev'ing the h$ll out of your engine.
