Hello Ray, In my 40 years of MF experience I would have to say that I haven't actually seen one break either. I have had several where the splitpins have worn away, dropped out and disengaged though. It is there as a safety device but in saying that it only shows what the tube and transmission is capable of withstanding. You might have heard of the book Inside Massey Ferguson written by ex-MF Service Dept and Technical Author David Walker. Out of curiosity I will send him an email for his experience in this and post back. DavidP, South Wales
