    Plastic injection molding resources

    Unfortunately I had to backburner this for the time being. The machinery market blew up before I could acquire everything I need and I feel the timing for introducing new products is not good right now anyway. I expect things will change in the coming months and hope to be able to pick it up...

    Clark C500Y150 w/ Continental F245 dies under load at idle

    Thanks for all the replies. I finally got around to digging into this today. I don't use the lift often but needed it today.. I first did a compression test to make sure I'm not wasting my time troubleshooting it and found all cylinders between 105 and 122 psi. I then pulled the plugs and found...

    Clark C500Y150 w/ Continental F245 dies under load at idle

    Initially I was glad it was a gas engine because all my engines are gas so I don't store any diesel. Then I bought a diesel truck with 300 gallon tanks and now I wish everything was diesel powered. Live and learn..

    Clark C500Y150 w/ Continental F245 dies under load at idle

    Supposedly it was serviced by a professional company just before I bought it. It looks the part and runs well otherwise.

    Clark C500Y150 w/ Continental F245 dies under load at idle

    My Clark lift dies when under load at idle. I need to drive it with two feet to keep the RPMs up when turning the wheel or lifting the forks or it dies. I thought it might just be a governor issue, but reviewing the F series overhaul manual it appears to have a gear driven governor that only...

    Need to move my new VMC from Portland, OR

    I'd just pay the $750 if I were you. You might see if the seller has a better hookup on a lift rental. Some times shops that regularly rent lifts get better rates. Hopefully you got a good deal on the machine. Always consider the cost of rigging/transport when machine shopping and factor it into...

    Oh, I'm sorry, I thought we were having an informed debate. I'll see myself to the exit.

    If not selectivity, maybe limited capacity? A lot has happened since, but it wasn't even long ago.

    Need to move my new VMC from Portland, OR

    If the seller can load, have a towing company with a rollback transport it. Try to schedule a day with absolutely no rain, or make sure it's tarped well. Otherwise you could use a freight company to haul it with an air ride equipped conestoga. Rent an 10k forklift with long forks to unload.

    Should prove interesting. How's that Dec 8th deadline working out?

    That's a very selective memory you have there.

    OP, listen to this man. The current president has a history of issuing illegal executive orders for the temporary effects they have knowing they will get thrown out in court. A few months from now there will likely be no mandate. You may still get fired if your employer is on the bandwagon, but...

    15k rated fork lift for 13.5k machine - will it lift?

    Yeah, I'm starting to lean towards renting a flatbed and paying a rigger to take delivery and load it on the flatbed for me to drive to the shop. This way I'm not holding up a truck trying to figure out how to pick it up safely while they block a lane on a 2 lane country road. Then I could take...

    15k rated fork lift for 13.5k machine - will it lift?

    Not many drivers are willing to attempt to back down my driveway. It's why I bought the fork lift in the first place so I can unload at the street. I've had a few short trailers get backed in, but no 53 footers. It's also only maybe 10 ft wide before one side drops down a hill and the other side...
