I believe it's on the groundwheel that lifts the plow out of the ground at the end of a row. They didn't have much in the way of hydraulics back then, and a lot of stuff was ground actuated.
Like manure spreaders from the old days, all ground driven. The ground here in the drive is packed recycled concrete. Pretty hard. When I drop the rake down, it only bites in about 1 1/2". Just right for getting the drive leveled out. Al least you did not chastise me the spending all this time making wheels that I could have bought for $10.
