It appears to be the pin you depress to allow the PTO shaft to slide into place and hold it in place once properly situated.

I think you've already identified it. The ones I'm familiar with use a spring for tension and clip to keep it in the hole.

Lost mine one time.
My solution was to clamp a 3/8 bolt in my drill press and using a file I 'turned' one (LOL, vertical lathe).
Drilled a hole for a cotter pin and scrounged a suitable spring.

That was 8-10 years ago and still holding just fine.
Not the most economical but sure saved lots of time plus I like DIY.
