I'm not sure if this piece is necessary or what it even does. Anyone have more info? It doesn't seem to affect the way it operated. I took the hub off and it all fell out. I put it back the best I could figure how. This is on the left side

That is called a "Pawl"

 

It is a critical part of the transmission as that is what drives the wheels! So you only had 1 wheel driving the tractor for however long it was broke for.

Generally these just wear out but I have seen a few broken.

I will check with him ASAP.

The other side doesn't have one or even appear to have ever had one. What does the spring clip to? Is how I have it correct?

The spring clip allows the pawl to move back and forth for reverse & Forward when the drive axle gets engaged

 

Pretty simple but yet effective system

I was getting ready to revise my previous statement. I have not taken the cover off the transmission gears and realized the other is underneath it.

Here's something interesting. I have two 58 rams. The one I'm restoring doesn't have a pawl on the right side like yours pictured. I checked my other 58 and it does. As soon as you take the hub off you can see it but not on my other ram.

I think the problem is the entire hub the pawl sits in is missing.
