Hyster S30XM:
Reverse only, no Forward.

My Hyster S30XM will go only in reverse, nothing at all when the lever is moved to forward. Everything else seems fine otherwise.
Any thoughts where to start the trouble shooting?
Thanks for any input.

Thanks for the reply, I wish I could post a picture but don't see a way. The solenoid seems to be mounted on the side of the gearbox with 4 allen head screws. It gets power by switching the shift switch forward and reverse. It gets 12V via a test light in both directions. I now need to see if the problem is elect or hyd in the unit. I don't have a wiring schematic but need to now check for resistance on the coils for each direction. I would think with just leaky o rings on the plunger it would at least still try to go. That or the plunger is not moving to it's forward position at all for some other reason other than the coil.
Am I even close to understanding this system. I do little British cars, this is all new to me. It just worked before!
Thanks again, Terry

First thing to check is the directional solenoid. Make sure it is operating properly. Next would be a pressure check.

Fact of the week

John Lennon had terrible eyesight and was very self-conscious about it. Early in his career, he would not wear his glasses during performances. In the end, John's 'granny glasses' became one of his most iconic trademarks. His last pair, worn on that tragic day in 1980, are kept at 'The Beatles Story' exhibit in Liverpool, insured for over £1 million.
