Impco Model J Regulator and Friends

The Impco Model J Regulator is a fantastic product, but like all machine parts, get worn out and need care. This blog page is dedicated to repairing and/or replacing your regulator. Impco is a manufacturer of fuel system components that has been around since 1958. Impco works with fuel system components  for alternative fuels like LPG/propane gas that allow for a cleaner environment. You can find Impco parts in a variety of different forklift brands such as Hyster, Nissan, Toyota, Yale and many others. Intella carries the most popular pressure regulator, the Impco Model J, along with a few other models, accessories and kits.

Full Replacements:

So your regulator is on it’s way to the forklift graveyard? Have no fear. Here at Intella we have a couple different models so you can find the perfect replacement to get your forklift running smooth again.

 

 

Classic model:  Impco Model J Regulator

The Impco Model J regulator/vaporizer delivers reliable performance and pressure output consistency. It’s reliability, especially with questionable fuel quality, has made it an industry standard for many years. Two vapor outlet pressures are available. The standard Impco Model JB (this version, meaning blue spring) provides -1.5″wc (0.37 kPa). The optional JO (J-orange) provides 0.5″ wc (0.12 wPa). The port size and mounting pad locations are identical to the Impco Cobra regulator and include a primary pressure test port and “left” or “right” fuel outlets.

Base model:  Generic Model JB Regulator

The generic model JB regulator and the Impco Model J are similar in build, although a noticeable difference would be the primer button found on the generic model JB. Impco no longer manufactures Model J’s with a primer button but the generic model JB does have one. The primer button can allow for a shot of propane  into the engine for starting purposes. The “B” stands for blue spring.  This is by far the most common model J regulator.  The blue spring offers negative 0.37 kPa (1.5 inches w.c.). The Impco Model JB diaphragm is made of hydrin and is suitable for most applications.

 

 

Repair Kits:

Don’t think you need a brand new regulator? Save some money and pick up a rebuild kit. You can repair and rebuild Model J Regulators using kits made of hydrin or silicone. You can rebuild a Model J regulator as many times as you can get your paws on a rebuild kit. Oh and you’re in luck because here at Intella, we regularly stock a few different kits.

 

What’s the difference between hydrin and silicone you ask?

Well to start off, silicone performs better in colder climates than hydrin. This is due to the fact that the silicone diaphragm stays noticeably more flexible in colder weather. The physical makeup of silicone is actually lighter than hydrin too, making a little bit more responsive. Lastly and very advantageous, is that silicone has a better resistance to being damaged from fuel.

 

 

Classic Kit: Impco Model J Repair Kit

Forklift Parts: The People’s Favorites

 Forklift Parts – Who Knew Some Parts Could Be So Popular?

Maybe not the high school quarterback, but almost just as popular, these forklift parts are some of the most sought out products here at Intella. This week’s blog from your favorite parts dealer will be discussing the most searched upon terms. What’s everyone really looking for when clicking on that trusty Google Search bar? Well keep reading to find out!

Intella Forklift Blue Light

When working with heavy and possibly dangerous products, I’ve always been told safety first. This principle seems to hold true as the Intella Blue Spot Light is one of the most searched about forklift parts we sell here at the Intella headquarters. Since 2012, we’ve actually sold more blue lights than anyone else in the USA. Not bad I’d say, but it’s not our marketing department doing the work. These Blue Spot Lights really speak for themselves. They are UL listed and created for the toughest of environments, built with a metal casing and stainless steel hardware. Not to mention you can use this light on almost any forklift, whether electric, LPG or diesel powered. This LED light is also extremely long life, with a span greater than 20,000 hours.

*Maybe you just drank 3 pots of coffee and 2 Red Bulls one Friday afternoon and decide you want to jump the loading dock with your forklift. Well here’s some good news since this stunt will probably end with bad news; the Blue Spot has a 12 month warranty so we’ll replace it for you (just not the rest of the forklift).

Tie Rod (includes bearing and nut)

Your forklift’s engine can be in great working condition for years on end. This is great! Unfortunately, the rest of the forklift does not have the same capability. Every time you use your steering wheel (nearly every time you use your forklift), it puts stress on the tie rod ends. So as you can see, they must be replaced over time due to wear and tear. This tie rod end is a direct replacement for Hyster part number 185870. This part also includes the bearing and nut needed for proper assembly.

Intella Single Phase 36V/140A Lift Truck Battery Charger

If you don’t have a working battery, it’s a safe assumption that you aren’t going to be moving very far and if you can’t move, neither will your product. With a quality battery charger this problem can be diminished. Coming up 3rd for the most sought out forklift parts would be this 36 volt 140 amp single phase charger.

Tech:
• Charging profile suitable for single and double shift operations
• Automatic equalizing/preservation
• Charging profile control by microprocessor
• Automatic start, charging process and shut off
• Advanced visualization by 5 LED’s /Date storage memory
• External optional keypad for programming and diagnostic.
• Delayed start to avoid sparks

12-24V LED Worklamp

This light is easy to install and remove from your lift truck. A clear acrylic lens protect the LED’s along with a black painted aluminum shell. This light can be operated within a range of 12 volts to 24 volts.
