D2MOVA, would you take a close up pic of the pliers when you have time? Would like to see the details of them.

I have started a section in the Technical Library for CAT Tool pictures and begun to add pictures from this thread.
They will be searchable by part number.
Please submit pictures (preferably in .pdf format) to

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!
 

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?


 

 

Hello Sir, I finally found time to take pics, of what I believe are the original IB7972 Pliers and IB7973 Screw Driver, that I found in the toolbox on my 1950 5U D2, and although they don't have any CAT part numbers, I have reason to believe they are the originals, given the history of this tractor (which you can read about here: www.acmoc.org/bb/discussion-d72/27964-fo...-3940-original-hours) and the fact that I found no other tools in the box that obviously weren't genuine CAT tools. The only markings I found were on the pliers, were 'Made in USA' cast into each of the handles and 'K16 Motor Duluth' stamped in near the pivot on one side, the Screw driver well may have had something cast or stamped into the handle but, this has long since worn off after rattling around in the toolbox for the past 72 years!

Thank you for the great pics Markds3.

Your pliers were made  by Diamond in Duluth Minnesota. I am a little skeptical that the pliers are Cat only because Cat puts numbers on all or most of their tools and even puts numbers on their parts including o-rings.   Perhaps long ago they didn't number everything like they do now.
The screwdriver I have no idea. I will post it on another site and see if anyone can identify the maker.

Anyone else have pliers and/or a screwdriver with a Cat number on them?

most likely that screw driver wouldnt be original as the handle is blue plastic not bakelite like evey other handle or knob on these old girls. the original probably had a timber handle as was common back then.
