Otis-Baker Forklift--Propane--Need help identifying engine maker Model FTP-080

I have a forklift I purchased at an auction and need to be able to get parts for it.

Model: FTP-080
Serial: R1898-21
OTIS Baker Manufacturer, but Otis is the only name on the capacity plate.
Engine: 6 cylinder flat head, propane.
Capacity: 8500 lbs.
Fuel: propane

1. is there a website where you can punch in serial numbers or model numbers to get information on the machine (year mftr, etc).
2. Cannot find any information for current manufacturer. I know they went through buy-outs over time, but surely someone is out there making parts, etc with a centralized database for this equipment?
3. Best place for parts online? I need a distributor and rotor and so far, unless I can tell them the engine make, they cannot get me parts, and say they have no way to look up how to identify the engine maker--so that is my main quest at this point so I can source some parts.

I am not sure how to post a photo here, new to the forum. The distributor cap is a delco model. Number on the side of the head is F227A-605__(can't make it out) M. I do not have any other identifying information for the unit.

Thanks!

Thanks. There is some weird model number issue. Apparently baker used the same model number on a non-Otis machine and it is an electric model, which makes all of this that much harder.

Ftd-080 and serial come from capacity plate on lift. Stamped numbers are really hard to make out.

Thanks guys! It is crab style. Assuming then top style replacement is out there? I cannot find anyone with part numbers for electrical components.

I am not aware that there was ever a model or serial # such as that. Are you getting that info from the spec plate? What size tires are on the truck?
Is the distributor cap a crab style where the wires come out of the side? If so that cap hasn't been available for 20 years. Let me know.

You have a Continental F227 engine.
Baker is now owned by Linde.
Google Linde forklift dealer and you should see a result for linde-mh in the results.
Click on that and you can search by your location for the dealer in your area.

No free on-line serial number look up. There are serial number guides but you need to pay for them - Atlas Serial Number Guide is one.
