Old Magnet can you help ?
Old Magnet I was wondering if you can help identify some of these parts ?
I have been offered a hole load of NOS Cat parts the guy sent me list of part # with description's but I'm having trouble
matching these up to any machine ( D2,D4,D6 etc )
here are some of the part numbers,
5B7233 Throttle ratchet
6B7722 steering clutch
6B7050 track roller bush
7B7170 dynamo gear
5B6337 clutch disc plate
4A521 clutch brake disc
4B6351E clutch lever
7B4011 clutch fork
5H6030 brake linings
3H1690 fuel pump tool
these are his descriptions not mine any help identifying these parts would be greatly appreciated I have been trawling through my
parts books and have managed to identify some other parts as D2
thanks in advance Richard.
I'd have to do the same thing.....rummage through the parts book.
The slick way to do it would be through the Cat NPR (I think that's correct) where a reverse directory can identify the part application....sorry I don't have one of those but if you can snag "Josh" who follows the BB, he has the reference source.
5B7233 D7 D8, 3t, 2u, etc.
6B7722 D7 3t,17a, etc.

5b6337 no info.
4a521 starting engine clutch plate d7, d8, 3t, 2u, etc.
7b4011 starting clutch fork 3t, 2u, etc.
5h6030 d47u, etc.
3h1690 rack setting gauge.
Thank you Josh,
Nice catch of parts, especially with the rack setting gauge in there.
Thanks Old Magnet and thank you josh,
I spent many hours trawling through my parts books with no luck,
Josh, do I have to register with the local Cat dealer to get the parts info, ie, type in the part # get the machine type it fits ?
General Gear has a parts interchange area on their website that is helpful.
Caterpillar's online information is mostly useless as to what a part goes to, and calling a Cat dealer is usually just about the same, the numerical parts reference I have is a paper "book", printed in the 1960s, about 20k pages of reference info, a dealer item that most all of went directly into the dumpster with the introduction of microfiche, as I understand it the microfiche version has much less information. I think it is not in the best interest of a corporation like Cat to keep information on obsolete parts and machines, and despite their lack of complete information available, they do better than most companies.
