I wonder if they slide in a bracket on the back of the seat or tank, and the rope, with a small knot in it, sits in the slot? I have the same hitch pin (first item on left) that I got off ebay recently - it's a beauty. I'm going to get my guy to turn down a new one out of whatever the right steel would be for a hitch pin?

Cheers,
Neil

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!
 
Do you know what the 2 items are 2nd and 3rd from the left are? Ag related for sure!

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!
 


Holds the trip implement rope up outa tracks, sometimes they need adjusted so the rope stays put but you still yank on it for a trip. I seen 'em mounted towards rear corner of seat side. not seen very often.

Thanks for posting the pic. Do the screwdriver and pliers have a Caterpillar part number on them? If so could you take some close ups pics as you get time to do so?

Hi they were bolted onto the side of the seat behind the the tool box ,they are spring loaded so stay tight at the top ,put aknot in the plow rope and slide it down were great but we lost our two by not having a knot in the rope but rather a loop and it pulled them off never to be seen again

it looks like they are for installing a clip when fixing the winch rope

that is how traction engines plowed a field in wet condtitions they set up a anchor point at the other end and winched the plow through and a farm hand would walk behind it and steer much like horse drawn plowing

Nifty on the plow clips. Never seen them before! I have always dug thru the toolbox of any tractor purchased, looking for buried treasure. That is how I acquired most of my CAT tools. So what you guys are saying, those plow clips are made of spring steel? TIA, JM

Not spring steel, guess regular hot rolled. Its formed in a manner that the tip just touches the seat side. With the larger opening is where i'd use a bar and adjust the tension of the tip. Only did once or twice in 20 some years with it on the machine.
