German term or phrase: Imbusschraube
Talking about a defect of a tractor's four wheel drive:
Imbusschraube für Allradmuffe vorn gebrochen, Allradbetrieb ausgefallen.
What kind of a screw is this?

English translation:Allen screw
Explanation:
It's evidently a (common) misspelling of "Inbusschraube". An "Inbusschlüssel" by the way, is an "Allen key".

Anyway, "Inbusschraube" is a brand name for an "Innensechskantschraube", which is an "Allen screw".

Other alternatives you'll find include "hexagon socket screw", "Allan screw", "hexagon socket screw key", and "socket-head cap screw".

Good luck,

Steve
