Hyster H 5.00 XL:
Engine Problems

Hi All, I have owned a Hyster H5.00xl for the last 25 yrs. Its been a great truck with a v6 GM lpg engine. It has not run right for some time, and the time has come to sort it out. Would any body on here know these answers
1) firing order
2) Which pistons are where and from front or back of engine
3) Plug gap
4) points gap
I have a suspicion that the plug leads have been wrongly placed by someone.........
Thanks in advance

Fact of the week
The concept of Daylight Saving Time (DST) was first implemented in Port Arthur, Ontario, Canada in 1908. The first proposal for DST, however, came in 1895 from New Zealand entomologist George Hudson who valued extra daylight so that he could hunt bugs after work during the summer months. He suggested a two-hour daylight-saving shift.
