Hyster S60FT:
Trouble Starting Forklift

I have a 1986 Hyster 60 that runs well but has some trouble starting. We have found that it starts if you lift the top of the Impco model 100 mixer and let a little bit of air in below the diaphragm. We replaced the diaphragm on the mixer and cleaned it out. It still has the same problem with a new diaphragm but it still has the same problem. I have done a lot of trouble shooting on the issue, but I think I am missing something on the troubleshooting. Does anyone know what might be causing this issue?

Is it a 60XL? It sounds like a rich running condition to me. I suggest investigating the regulator. The diaphragms are known to get small pin holes or even a tear which leads to way too much fuel getting to the engine. I hope this helps.

Fact of the week

The People's Choice Word of the Year 2022 as announced by Macquarie Dictionary was decided by Australia as "bachelor's handbag". The term refers to a takeaway roast chicken, often packaged in a small plastic bag with a handle which resembles a handbag. As it is prepared for immediate consumption, often favoured by a single person, it received this humorous colloquial name.
