Vintage Caterpillar tools

2 years 8 months ago #231612 by CATtools
I have been using your site to identify what some of the Caterpillar tools I have collected over the years were intended for and what equipment tool kit they came in. Lots of good information here and a few pics but some of the tools I'm still looking for I can not find any pictures of.
I frequent flea markets, 2nd hand stores and yard sales often and would like to have a color image in my head so I know exactly what to look for.
Looking for a good picture of 1B7972 slip joint pliers, 1B7973 screwdriver and a 4H5151 wrench. My interest are hand tools and tools included in D2, D4, D6 D8, and other earth moving equipment tool kits, as well as Caterpillar numbered hand tools used to repair.
If someone has a picture of any of the specific tools  I listed or others please post a pic.

Is there already a Cat tool picture thread ? If not,  should I post pics of the tools I have collected  in this thread or make a thread in the " Models and Collecting" area?

Hi, Please go ahead and post the pictures of your tools in this thread. I cannot help with detailed pictures of the specific tools you mention but hopefully someone will be able to oblige. I am also a collector of Cat tools. I started trying to collect a set for each of my tractors but soon realised it would be virtually impossible. It didn’t stop me trying though. Along the way I have found quite a few. I also started a spreadsheet showing which tools were supplied with each tractor (as listed in the parts catalogue).
The Technical library on this website has many parts catalogs. The library is accessible to club members.

if you ever find the spanner for doing the injection bleeders dont let it out of your site if you have a cat crawler as they are shaped just so and do the job perfectly. this spanner is rarer than hens teeth.

www.ebay.com/itm/265333350513?_trkparms=...CLK%7Cclp%3A2047675I believe the type of screw driver you are looking for is one of these?

Or this type?

Perhaps you are correct depending on the year of the machine. I know Proto makes tools for Caterpillar.
The screwdriver in the old drawings of the tool kits has a fluted handle.

You mean these? They work on power units too.

Here are the original CAT tools that I found with my 1950 D2 5U, including two of the spanners for the injector bleeders, and I can attest they do work well for the almost inaccessible screws - I've bled the air out of the system twice now!

In the parts list they are shown as a 4B5660 (or 4B5680 - I can't quite see) Clip (Plow Rope), see below, but I have absolutely no idea how they are used! It would interesting to know for sure!
