The TKO is stronger BECAUSE it uses a bigger input and output shaft. In fact, mine is a 1/2 TKO because I replaced the 3550 output shaft with the TKO output shaft. Gears, etc. are identical between the two.
Note: the tailshaft housing has to be re-bored to accept the larger bushing and seal that the TKO shaft uses.
