      Are you a veteran? I've kinda gotten a feeling that you may be a retired service member, figured it was worth asking.

    Your calm and peaceful nature really make these videos enjoyable. Like you, I can fix just about _anything_ that's not melted or burned to a crisp, but my challenge would be containing the occasional Tourette's-like outbursts that emerge when things start going sideways!

    I don't believe that plastic sheet is a roof for the forklift as every forklift I've ever driven simply used a steel cage without any kind of a roof which simply makes it harder for the operator to see when going up to the second or third level of pallet storage. It seems to me to be simply another unwanted piece of flotsam that found a location out of the way to store a bunch of unwanted items, old tires, etc.. 99 percent of all forklifts operate indoors and don't use a plastic or glass window on top of the cage.

      Even if it's not it's still a good idea for an outdoor forklift. We used to wrap the tops of out cages with shrink wrap in the rainy months.

    Watching you wench that really got me cringing. You should have something around the cable to dampen it should it snap. Old tires or even carpet will save you from getting cut in half.

      Additionally when I brought mine home I rented a lowboy tilt trailer. I have a car/equipment trailer, but just didn't want to be in the position Mustie put himself in. It was worth the $70 (IIRC) to keep it safe.
      But different people have different ways; I'm just glad he got his on and off without incident.

    The plug wires look like rodent damage. Last year I let my truck set for a week or so and when I went to start it it ran awful rough. The squirrels/rats/mice had cut two plug wires and there were entire pieces around 6 inches missing. They also got one of the fuel injectors both wires to the plug were cut. It's worse on newer cars with the soy based wire insulation. That's not insulation it's bait. Honda will sell you a roll of duct tape impregnated with capsaicin, it's got rodent pictures on it in the circle with a bar across it. Honda part number 4019-2317

    i say this time and time again ALWAYS put plugs in by hand. only the last step should be with a plug key that way you cant damadge the head repairs on a head are expensive and if you are realy unlucky you need a new head and that can cost a lot!

    Last year when I was working to make a money for my uni-student-on-hiatus self, I was on this near exact model Yale after getting my cert and a job. Visually identical, of all things. Hella old and weathered, with a 2.5L Nissan l-4. Temperamental and weary (we called her Ol' Yeller for her bright yellow paint, age and temperament, as opposed to the other larger and less yellow TCM we had), she was picky with the weather, her starter, and even the position of the key in the cylinder but once I got used to her old age shenanigans, her controls were some of the best I've ever known. Both lift and tilt were super smooth and a breeze to feather, boost and master as was the motor itself. Was never a big fan of the wide ass combined clutch/brake pedal though - it made one's left leg a bit sore at times. Propane fitting would also leak violently, without warning, at the most random of times.
    The job was obviously nothing more than temporary for me but she was one of the better parts of it. It's a shame that our company was such a cheapskate and the Yale (Ol' Yeller) and TCM (Temperamental C*** Machine) were both falling apart at the seams from wilful mechanical neglect.
    And such, it's a surprise to see that you've landed a similar one. I hope you are able to fix her up and put her to work!

    Been driving diesel lift trucks for over 30 years now always wanted to own one, don't know what I would do with it other than use it as a heavy duty floor Jack or easy access to roof of house, one thing I have noticed over the years is the seat improvement went from basically a board bolted to the hood to a full air ride captains seat floating over rough ground
