Not visible, but all bolts etc., except on injector pumps (2 Bosch single cylinder pumps driven off an extension of the oil pump drive) and the electrical gear, are UNC. The attachment fittings holes are at imperial (US) centres (i.e. 3 inches etc.) and UNC threads. The engine has the same 3 1/4 inch bore and 4 inch stroke as had the earlier 2,3 and 4 cylinder tractors, the DLD-2, DED-3 and DGD-4 (1953-1956). In the new 1956-1964 D-series tractors two different bores were available, the 3 1/4 inch bore and 3 7/16 inch bore and the larger engines ran faster, 19800 for the D-217 as against the 1800 for the D-214. Similarly for the D-320 and D-324 tractors. The engine capacity if the D-214 is 66 cubic inches, about 10% greater than a Cub and the maximum engine speed is 1800 rpm.
The brakes (like the developments of the German F-12, 1938 to 1953 (the last being a diesel equivalent of the F-12 the Farmall DF-25)) are internal expanding, one each side of the differential and are like the Farmalls A and Cub, difficult to get into. There is a hand-operated differential lock, 6 forward gears and one reverse, 1st gear is a creeper gear (1 kph at full throttle) and 5th and 6th are road gears, about 22 kph in 6th. There is a 530 rpm PTO, the drive for the mid-mount mower. The top link attachment point for the 3-point linkage is easily replaced by the trailer hitch.
Very few German built IH tractors came to New Zealand. 252 DED-3 came in the mid 1950, at about 20 HP they filled a gap between the Farmall 100 and the B-250. About 51 D-324 tractors were imported in 1956-1957 and ihn the early 1960 a single 624 came into the country but IH found it difficult to sell. Like motor vehicles, the import duty on non UK or Australian made goods were much higher, UK and Aussie made cars they attracted a duty of 70% but the rest of the world 130%. IH Germany offered the D-214/217 and the bigger D-430 etc tractors to NZ agents but the 2 cylinder tractors would have competed with the Farmall 100/130 and the French built Super FC and the 4 cylinder tractors would have competed with the Britsish built B-250/B-275 tractors. My D-214 is the only one in New Zealand. There is a D-219 imported second hand from Japan in a museum in the North of the North Island (the D-219 is replacement for the D-217 in post-1962 (SAE rating vs DIN rating))

Very interesting. Strange use of Inch series fasteners and spacings. Nice information on a very nice tractor. Thanks. Jim
