    I bought an old 1960s diesel Hyster 80 at a coal mine closure auction......it had six inches of coal in the tank.....no it wasnt steam.........anyhoo ,tranny had problems ,dragged badly in forward......never fixed.......ran for 15 years in my engineering business,sat 10 years in the weather behind my house,used another 4 years,has again sat recently....In that time ,I have maybe replaced a couple of hoses with used ones,and if I needed it again,I would get it going....never had any brakes,so I always drove it myself.

    Roosa Master pump it will probably start with fresh fuel. Plunger pump like Cat will probably have to be disassembled. Unit injectors may be stuck. Tapping and fiddling may free them, but reman usually not to expensive. johnk's tips on half oil in a detroit and heating the injectors are good. I wonder if the heat would free a stuck Cat pump?

    had a strange accident (almost) with a D9H ,the inline pump has a small oil pressure boosted governor,and the tiny piston in the governor can stick in the full rack position when the engine lies idle.......water in the oil is common with D9s,gaskets leak when the liners sink in the block.....anyway ,young Dave ,started the engine with the turbo pipes off,and it began to slowly pick up revs,and fill the shop with black smoke......I yelled to get clear ,shes gonna blow,and Dave went to block the intake with his belly.......it would have killed him.....I managed to find a old car hubcap ,and blocked the intake with that....The motor was already over revving,and the shop was filled with dense black smoke,then with the air blocked , choking white fuel mist.....We were lucky that day to all be in one piece.

    In your first post you mention fixing the seat twice so I thought you were especially proud of it so I poked a little fun at you

    Most pump shops are masters at BS and glass beading parts.

    Shitty forklifts are expensive to make good. I did a 1977 Hyster 30 up and it was an undertaking. Cylinders, hoses, seat, paint, mast chains and rollers, seat, wiring, battery. Then you have the engine and tranny to fix up.

    A decent, cared for older forklift for $3k-$5k is a pretty sweet deal in comparison.

    Did the hubcap keep it from putting a window in the side of the block? BTDT 3306 Cat.
