That also brings to friction bearing and solid bearing. The book is one thing and what the men in the field calls them are two different things. Originally the bar or link from the link and pin was called a draw bar. when the automatics came in they still called them drawbars. Same with an Ice box and refrigerator. My folks always had an Ice box even if it ran on electricity.

Occasionally, you also heard "drawhead," but not often, although the
official rulebook term was coupler.
