  1. Wow, way to be inviting to a new member. Welcome to the forum! Sounds like a great project. There are lots of good people on here that will give you some ideas. I’ll be following.
  2. It is gas. I have run several gallons through it so I feel pretty sure it is clean. I was thinking of putting a head gasket on it but don’t know if that would help or not. Is there anything I can put in the oil or through the carb to see if it will clear up? If that doesn’t work I’ll have to dig a little deeper. What is a good compression number on these motors?
  3. It gets a little weak and seems to spark knock after it has warmed up. Head gasket?
  4. I have a flat head 4 cylinder continental in a hyster forklift that I need help troubleshooting. It barely ran when I bought it but after a tune up and a carb rebuild it starts and runs pretty good. The problem is it smokes. It doesn’t burn any oil. Compression is about 120 on all cylinders. Any ideas?

    Fuel tank restore

    I know this question has been asked before about refreshing 86 series fuel tanks. Eastwood company has black trim paint but I don’t know how that would hold up on a fuel tank.
  6. I have been using ConocoPhillips power Tran for a while now and have been very happy. Talked to supplier yesterday current price is about 435 for 55 gallon but said all products are having a 12% price increase in February. Can’t say I didn’t see that coming. Stock up!
  7. Any good products to use on a very weathered plastic fuel tank? I know it was black at one time but now it is gray.

    Pto detent

    Ok thanks. My cable is connected under the seat but I assume the adjustment is the same.

    Pto detent

    When engaging the pto lever on my 5220 it wants to fall back into the off position. I have not had it disengage while running. Is there any adjustment I can make to to the lever or cable or is there a internal detent?

    Cab stands

    It’s not going! As stated before, I have measured exactly 1/2 inch all the way around the housing and the top shaft is just starting. Could something else have moved?

    I got a broken snap ring in mfd coupler. I’ll update when I get that and give another go at it. Thanks for the support. I haven’t been this frustrated with one in a while. Nothin a little bourbon won’t fix!

    Cab stands

    Still won’t go. I got it 1/2 inch all the way around and it just stops. How far does the top shaft go in? It is just starting in at 1/2 inch

    The top shaft does not seem to want to line up no matter how much I turn it. I’m going to roll it back apart and look things over again.

    Cab stands

    I’m within 1/2 inch of having it together and it just stops. Any thoughts?

    The sealant says to use a activator spray on one housing surface. Can it be used without the activator?
