Some tractors have a threaded coupler for adjusting the clutch linkage. I need to get a couple for projects. Do any of you know what they are called? I ve been searching and keep coming up empty.

A couple options are getting a turnbuckle and then fitting whatever ends you need to it if the original ends don't suit you. Second would be using a sleeve nut, which is made for fasting pieces with a LH thread to ones with a RH thread. McMaster-Carr and many other places carry them.

The ones with the same threads on both ends are called 'barrel nuts'. I don't know if the turnbuckle style are called that or not.

I found 1/2" ones at local hardware store.
Used one in clutch linkage of D17 puller.

TimV, McMaster was my first thought, but I can't find any there, just RH threads at each end. Probably have them under another name???

Here's two places that have them:

Like these:

https://www.mcmaster.com/turnbuckles

In the bottom row "other Turnbuckles" click on Female Thread Adapters. Those are described as joining left and right hand threads. That row includes some turnbuckle style, left and right threaded rods

TRK ..... I think barrel nuts have the same thread on both ends. Used for simply connecting threaded rods, not for lengthening or shortening.
