Report to Moderator

Have just finished the restoration of my 1961 McCormick International D-214 (D-214 Deutschland(Germany)-2 cylinder, 14 HP)
The Farmall DLD-2 (1953-1956) was conceived as a diesel equivalent of the Farmall Cub. This was replaced by the Farmall D-212 (1956-1957) but little European interest in having cultivation implements mounted under the tractor.
To celebrate 50 years of IH at Neuss the Farmall name was dropped from the tractor line and the Farmall D-212 was replaced by the D-214 Standard tractor (1958-1962). There was total of 8046 built.
Replaced by D-215 (15 HP SAE = 14 HP DIN) (1962-1964)
My tractor was mported from Germany in early 2005. The restoration started 3 years ago though it was held up the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes and work, as a structural engineer, for the Royal Commission set up after the earthquakes.

Hi there,
I,am Wartena from the Netherlands.
You,v done A GREAT JOB on this D-214.
So to see your missing 1 part.
The anhanger kupplung at the rear of the tractor.
You,v got the wheels white and red ,like it is .
But however.in the center of the wheel, near the red color .it must be white ,going round if you understand what i,am meaning.
But in the end ,she is verry nice.
Greetings from Holland.

Very nice job with a very unique IH tractor. You would certainly be a hit at a Red Power Round-up in the USA with this tractor. Great job and very sharp, Hal.

I see one IH aspect... the mounting boss on the bell housing... looks just like those on a cub.

Well done. The interesting thing to me is that it has no visual cues of USA IH heritage in it (at least not on the outside. Jim

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 nice Athol, we get a few German built IH tractors in the UK now. I would like to find one to put with my B250 as it is the 49th one made. MJ

That is my 1937 O-12, finished restoration in 2002, does need a little work on the paint around the engine, the only bit that did not get POR-15 during the restoration. There is also a 1948 Farmall Super A (next project), a 1941 W-4 in there as well as a 6 ft McCormick-Deering Horse binder.

It is basically a back rest for a passenger riding on the fender. All German Internationals had these back rests as standard equipment until cabs were introduced.
And yes, they were a nice grab bar for mounting the tractor.
We had two D430s. One standard tread for our crops and arable land and the other was a narrow tread and had smaller wheels for orchard use.
A peculiar feature of the standard D430 was its two point fast hitch. It was the only fast hitch I ever saw on a German IH.

Thanks Hendrik.
The first time I ever saw a D-214 was at a tractor show near Wolvega, Netherlands in 2004. Before that, I did not know that they existed. Similarly there were several D-212 and a "Dairy Special" version of the D-212 made for the Dutch market at the show.
