See the link below, This is the stranded pto , mechanical type and the end of the lever, goes in the groove of the # 7 sliding gear. You can feel the lever tip engaging the groove, with the lever in the groove, you can put a couple of test bolts in and be sure the lever moves the shift collar.

Opps, I think it is the # 4 gear gear that moves, but you can see the sliding part with the cover off!
