Forklift Parts Manuals

New Feature!

Big, new feature here at Intella! We’ve made finding forklift parts with just that much easier. At the corporate office that makes up Intella Liftparts, we do our best to fine tune everything that makes up your online retail experience. That’s why we have implemented a new search feature based off of the forklift model number you have. So instead of receiving a list of a thousand different forklift parts, you can narrow down those results specifically to fit your forklift. The first step in the search process is to obtain your forklift model number. If you don’t know it, have no fear the Intella archives are here. Here are a few posts that lay out how to find your serial number based on the model you have.

Finding Your Forklift Part

After you have your model number identified, you will click on the icon that pertains to it. You will then find a list of various parts icons, just like what’s pictured below. By clicking on the part you need, an air filter for example, you will be taken to a page that lists all air filters that fit the model forklift you’ve selected.

To search for parts by your Caterpillar part number, visit our Caterpillar Parts Lookup.

Search by Forklift Model Number

As of right now, the parts lookup by forklift model number is available for Toyota, Hyster, and Caterpillar. For those with other forklift brands, we are still in development. So don’t worry, more brands are going to be coming soon… we just couldn’t wait to release our new feature! Here’s the links to the part look-ups available right now:

Inspecting Impco Systems for High CO Levels

Step 1: Squeeze Hose

Use a needle-nose pliers to pinch the vacuum hose on the VFF-30. If the RPM speed changes, the o-ring seal is bad. If after disconnecting the hose the engine doesn’t die or the o-ring is bad, the Impco VFF-30 needs to be replaced or rebuilt. You can also test this using carbon monoxide readings.

*If you have an electric lockoff in your lift truck, you will also have a vacuum safety or an oil pressure switch. It is against regulations for these to be disconnected (see NFPA Pamphlet 58).

Step 2: Prime

Push the primer button while the engine is running on the Model J vaporizer-regulator. IMPCO no longer manufacturers a model J with a primer button.  However, primer buttons are available on Impco model J generic units which we offer.  The engine should stall or completely shut off while pushing the button and start back up to idle as soon as you release. If this doesn’t happen or pushing the button causes the engine to speed up, adjustments are needed with the air-fuel mixture in the mixer.  To watch how a Impco model J is rebuilt, check out this video here.  A video on how to rebuild an Impco VFF30 can be found here.

Turn the idle mixture screw (on the mixer) counterclockwise as far as possible. The emissions reading should decrease in carbon monoxide.

Take out the air filter and inspect it. Replace the filter if there is an increase or decrease in emissions after the air filter is removed.

Step 5: Mixer

If you haven’t had any problems with anything in steps 1-4 and CO levels are still too high, the mixer must be replaced. Usually, you can replace your Impco Model 50 carburetor/mixer with a new Impco Model 100 or 125 with minimal adaptations. If this is not the case for you, go with a Model 55.

Step 6: Air Valve

There are 4 screws holding the Impco Model CA100/125 mixer cover that need to be removed in order to check out the air valve. (It should be part AV1-14-4; if not, replace with the correct part.) Make sure the metering cone is clean on the inside and there are no signs of wear. If you see marks implying the valve is rubbing, either sand the guide gently or replace the air valve. A lean air shim or 2 may be installed at this point if the fuel mixture still isn’t right.  Install the first shim on the metering cone lip and check the emission levels; if only a minor improvement, add the second shim.

*Clean the air valve with a solvent solution. Do not wash the diaphragm or use an abrasive cleaner on any parts. Make sure the gas valve cone is tight in the body housing.

Step 7: Power Mixture Setting

Emissions should be at an acceptable level when the truck is idling. Set the power mixture and load the mast by tilting completely back or forward. If you have a rich condition based on the exhaust analyzer, turn the power valve, or gate valve as its also known, to the “L” position.
