I know what you are talking about, But I've been unable to find out exactly what it was for?
Years ago I bought 1950 cylclone B at a auction .. It came equipted with some options that I've seen befor one I had never seen.. It had the 1/2 rod under the battery box that mounted a triangular heavy bracket to the side of the box on the L/H side & a 5/8 rod that came from the bracket & traveled all the way down the draw bar support. This 5/8 rod was only threaded on each end about 1" long each end with should built into the rod so it wouldn't pull threw the hole. This triangle bracket had a couple extra square holes for 1/2 inch carriage bolts on the side & it was molded around the back of the box about 1.5 inchs. It fit the battery box like a GLOVE. On the right side of the box the threaded rod came out through the hole between the battery box mounting suport lugs on top the rock shaft. This rod then mounted a fancy heavy manufactured Light Bracket that would allow light to shine Right Rear of Tractor. None of these parts appeared to be HOME MADE. I still have the light bracket & lite that is a John Deere rear Lamp. Just like the one mounted in the back of the box. Both lights could be adjusted where ever operater wanted them to broadcast light.
I had asked at that time what this bracket was for? I received no answer at the time. It is NOT in the B or A Parts Book, my personal conclusion since it was designed for other mounting hardware or braces it was for a Cotten Picker mounting super structer seat extension or something?
