Hyster YE40:
Starter problem

This old forklift still works great, but it is difficult to start, even with a new, fully charged battery. I am trying to find a starter for it. It is an air cooled 4 cyl. and uses lp gas.
The starter on it now is a Delco Remy Model 1107163, Serial #8H26
A company said that the HY118616A starter is what they come up with, but the picture shows the solenoid to be 90% off from where it is on my starter.
Does anyone know which starter this lift takes? Thank you for your help.

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.
