I have been working on repairing/restoring a 1960 Ford 661. I have been having difficulty figuring out the purpose of the connector pictured below. It is in both sides of the differential. Any help would be appreciated.

From where I stand when behind my 971 those little brackets are a lot handier than those chains.

I have an 841, and I just snap my lynch pins onto my..."spacer chains"?... that connect the side arms onto the rear axle.

That is where you ground the carburetor.
It needs an 0 or 00 sized cable.

Thanks for the reply. I thought that is what it might be. I saw something similar in the parts manual but it kept describing it as a linch pin. I thought it was a misprint. Also thought it might be used to ground something electrically.

It is for holding your lynch pins when you're not using your 3 point hitch. You may have to loosen the nut a little and turn it straight up and down to use it tho.

Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
