Dam that brings back memories Mustie . Ive drove many in my younger yrs . An not to brag was damn good on um .
Are you a veteran? I've kinda gotten a feeling that you may be a retired service member, figured it was worth asking.
'Waxoil!' A forklift's best friend!
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!
a forklift so cool........
Looks like the old Mustie special.
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.Cheers!
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
You put a lot of strain on your truck transmision,,aren't you suppose to put the truck in neutral and step on the brakes? The forks could be removed
your killing me larry 500k views. man at 20 plus minutes. that is super cool
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!
I'm pretty sure Mustie knows how to install a spark plug, he's not a Millennial.
When you know you made a mistake buying a Toyota
*Shrugs* Some people like those rice burners for some reason; to each their own.
Nice bug !!!
I rather enjoy how he talks to us while he films, as if we are there with him. It makes his content feel much more relaxed and enjoyable
So this is what happened to uncle Joe
Wow, almost half a million views! What is it about old forklifts?
Guys like to fork around.
Propane is 105 octane so you can run much more ignition advance and get more power than standard gasoline.....
Standard pallet is 48x40 inches.
That plexiglass I believe might go on top the cage for ass protection
Should have gotten a ford smh
That fella barking orders would get on my nerves.
normaly when something is unpluged its the BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP thing lol
chris zag lol ikr
did you finish that karmann-ghia rear quarter?
OMG, that was awesome.
you need a bunch of WD40 when working on old junk like that
Nice seeing that you didn't break an axle on your trailer. The forklift was just saying hi when it zapped you.
Somebody got a little throttle happy!! Gotta love Brian lol
that is a mazda engine
At 4:39, For fun, I set the play back speed to 50%.
Alvin and/or Theodore and/or Simon
my nehibor works on forklifts for a living at Hy-Tek if you have any issue or questions i can possibly get some expert help from him to help you.. He is also ASE certified for forklifts..
That magician dude at 2:20 is pretty cool with that motionless walking.
Lazy fat dude ,doin nothin' to this video, slacker!
Epic respect looking forward too seeing it running respect thank you the Dream is rill
on the next episode.. lets see what we get ... BOOM!... .... yeah when you got to bring shovels to dig out what you're buying you know its a good one.. well i hope you got a good deal on it.. why does it weigh so much? did they put weights on it? ..must have. that guy is going to be pissed when he watches your video and sees its a starter switch.. maybe you can fix the key for safety sakes .. probably why he cut the wires so no one would try using it. but no bottle.. you got to believe someone disabled it on purpose it wasn't kids.. someone didn't want that thing being used.
get some airbags for your truck, it really helps!
1,100 hours? Why hours is it not measured in miles?
@Mustie1 thanks :)
most power equipment uses an hour meter,
14:10- woops is right lol
Mustie has a new toy yay!
What is the handling capacity of that fork lift ? Anyone know?
Where I work they through the old forklifts iin scrap bin. No matter how good they run. I wished I could get 1
But will it blend? That is the question.
The way you guys say "straighten her out" is very misogynistic.
Didn't get used much LMFAO
Fun fact: In Dutch the forks are called spoons, while the machine itself is still called a forklift. Don't ask me why.
at 39:00 that sounds like me in the morning haa haa
Where i work, we still have one like that's in good condition. It's my favorite one to drive!
Forklift tech here... just watching for entertainment.
Dude- You should've took the barrel clamp - The blue attachment there - You missed that on - We just bought one for 500 bucks!! I hope you did actually get that thing!
how can it start with a cut spark plug wire?
This was really entertaining. Thanks for great content.
i work on a company wich have a very old toyota forklift - it has no page relapsing and it have a 2-speed manual gearbox ( 1 lever = back/forward, other Lever = Gear 1/Gear 2) its pretty fun to drivegreetings from switzerland
Planning on palletizing the hoard?
wasnt the lp tank there beside the building, where you got it from?
me: i'll go to sleep early today.me at 3 am: Will It Run? cheapest Forklift I could find.
Put a carb on that bastard!
Full of admiration for folks who laugh at things that won't work or fail, I confess that my first instinct is to use a sledgehammer before the diagnostic side kicks in a minute later. Respect, I enjoy your skills and lessons in handling adversity :o)
spoiler: it will run
I'm thinking that "if it originally" had head and tail lights the switch they were using for power, would've been for those lights.
How cheap is cheap? 100.
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!
Those tires are in better shape than the ones at my work our forklift they will run on the same tires until they're literally showing wires before they bother to replace them and it's not like my work is poor I work at Walmart
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
Once you get a good gas forklift you're set. Electric forklifts are super nice but not as user friendly imo.
Wire some old style orange rotating lights on the top
You are one lucky son of a bitch to get a forklift
Part 2 please!
Was the karcher pressure washer for sale too?
we got a forklift from the 2000's and it has 4000 hours on it
I just watched a guy try to move an old forklift for 20 minutes... why was it so entertaining???
blur out your license plate next time
I didn't know they had air tyres
some do some dont,
looks like a nissan oil cap
You need a larger truck if you are going to haul equipment like the forklift.Cheers
Why is this in my recommended, again?
its that good🙃
I actually use to drive one of these back in 2010ish worked like a dream tbf
500 bucks!? you must be the luckiest sumina@itch i watch on here! lol truly blessed... second vid please! lol
What if you convert it to a normal gasoline engine? Just put a regular carb on it, put a tank and call it a day :)
all that stuff and you don't have a portable compressor? harbor freight 65 bucks...love mine...two years now...
Lets get out of harms way in case it shoots something. That’s what she said...
Just take the mast of it. Real easy to do then it should fit in your garage
It's the lpgas diaphragm - it is controlled by a solenoid for safety. Very simple fix
Didn’t know Yale made Forklifts...here in England they’re known for the door locks & that’s about it.
Looks like the one master Milo uses!
oil fill cap is definitely a mazda one, i suspect it is a mazda engine
well, that is the first time I've seen butt connectors used on ignition wires.
usual fuel issues with propane are gummed up fuel regulators from the tar they put in the fuel to make it stink. hope you can figure this one out, i have faith in you. great video as always.
Enjoy your videos and problem solving and insight....Thanks !!Hey add a couple 3 foot DRIVEWAY markers with reflectors to the sides of your trailer.Makes it easy to back when your view from the vehicle is blocked.Use them when backing a trailer with my full size Ford Transit VanThey also wobble when towing and help folks to notice the load....JIM
Put that engine in the cushman lol
my guess is they had the gas bottle on wrong if it spluttered a lot using far too much propane liquid instead of propane gas... the amount of times i've seen idiots putting propane tanks on incorrectly!most propane bottles for gas trucks have an arrow on the bottom showing you which way up the bottle needs to face...
need a updated video on this
And 45 minutes just flew by. Awesome channel, my man.
Did you quit on the Vespa? Thought that one was worth making it look new! Last video it came out sounding pretty good then nothing added, but I'm kinds like that, abandon project for a long time then come back and finish it.
Next time get A real trailer.
My father ran the quality department of the main hyster-yale factory (previously named nacco) for 30 years so i’m sure his hands have been on this!! So cool
most dangerous thing i've seen in a while 17:40
Dang I know a guy who has 3 for sale 200$ dont run he dont know why
