How do you remove the drain plug? I have the CAT hex tool but is seems like the hex part is too short to reach thorugh the belly pan. What am I missing? My D2 is a 5U1685. Thanks for any advise

Hi, Loren,


You can make up a plug puller with an old broken socket and a bolt for the size you need with a short or long extension. What, ever is needed

I didn't even weld up an old socket--just got a bolt to fit and welded a nut on--then used a socket and extension.

I just took a long bolt that fit the plug and welded a piece of bar stock onto the threaded end for a handle.

if your really in a pinch, find a bolt with the right size head and length you need, then use a pipe wrench to turn it. I.m pretty sure a standard 3/4 inch bolt has a 1 1/8th head on it and this is the size you will need.

Buy a new plug then you can use a 3/4' extension and dont have to screw around with the bolt and it slipping out of the plug.

I made mine by welding a length of 3/4 pipe to a spare lug nut off my old Dodge dually

Where's the paperclip and gum wrapper solution? We've got some McGuyvers on board here. :lol:

Seriously, those are some good tips! I'll need to fire up my welder and get to that "special tool" project just after I finish my MIG cart build.

I found this in one of my D2's tool boxes. It has the word "Truth" stamped in it and on the hex socket(?) the number 569 is cast in. Is this a Caterpillar part?

Sorry but the upload photos seems to not be working.

Ken,
I’m going out on a limb here with saw in hand, without seen the photo and not knowing the SN of the tractor in question. I think the number you are referring to is a casting number. The parts number for a drain wrench for the D2 (5J1864 to 5J3500) is 1B5175.
