Oh, and a very dog eared copy of the 1955 Service Tool catalog which I hope to scan for the tech library soon;

 

I missed out on a NOS Caterpillar ridge reamer on eBay a few years ago and it still haunts me.. must be a sickness.

Tony what's 8S4613 for? Looks like something to do with the fuel system.

Cheers,

That Armstrong 4B7616 wrench is cool!

I believe all but the smallest combo wrench in your set were also sold by Snap on under the Par-X brand and for a short time also branded Blue-Point. The smaller wrench looks to be another Blue-Point version or Snap on

Hi Neil,
 Yes it’s a “wrench” to be used with an extractor for fuel injection pumps on compact fuel systems apparently. It came to me with the 5F-8353..

 

Probably won’t come in handy for me.. but you never know!

regards,

Tony

I never knew about the trip rope holder before. I can understand in most instances a D2 would not need 2. But every size larger I can see the need.

John Deere's first improvement on the old spring tooth cultivator, that I knew as JD CC cultivator. I believe all had a trip rope lift mechanism powered from a drive chain to a wheel or latter hydraulic lift. But the size used behind a D4 had 2 lift mechanisms so 2 ropes. The same with any grain drills that had a chain powered lift mechanism.( lite bulb moment ) A case where 2 would be needed with a D2. The power lift mechanism used by a number of different manufactures, just that the JD dealer was still the Cat dealer here until 1982 or 83.


Working around oak trees and sidehills all trip ropes where attacked with one strand of bale wire with a hook. Always wanted the rope to be the weak link between employment and tractor.


What is it about the quality of the old wrenches. Had the Valcheck double open end in the one D6. Used it to open the screen on the radiator all the time, until I left it on the track. Spent a good amount of time looking and never found it.  Just something about the fit and the way it just fit my hand.
