Toyota forklift transmissions are made by Aisin Company. They’re actually built in an Aisin plant in Indiana so even though Toyota is a Japanese company, they have American built transmissions.

The forklift transmission part number 32010-U2260-71 is used in Toyota’s serial G851 forklifts. That’s Toyota-speak for the following forklift models which you would see on your forklift data tag:
8FDU20 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FDU25 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FGCU30 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FGCU32 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FGCU20 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)
8FGCU25 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)
8FGCU30 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)
8FGCU32 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)

This is pretty much the heart of the line forklift transmission for Toyota  forklifts built in the last ten years. Intella can supply this transmission either new or remanufactured, along with other toyota forklist parts you may need. Check out Intella Parts’ transmission remanufacturing process.

Toyota Forklift Parts: Top 5 Selling Products

The first ever Toyota forklift was produced in 1956. It has been some time since then and things have changed. Toyota forklifts today receive some of the highest brand ratings so it’s no wonder why we sell so many of their parts and replacements. To compliment the company’s work, we will cover the top 5 selling Toyota forklift parts in today’s market.

1) Toyota 2 Sided Key

2 Sided Key – part no. 57591-23330-71

At number 1, we have a Toyota key to start off the list (no pun intended). We here at Intella know you jump for joy when you see your forklift. You want to hop in and get cruising around a fast as possible, we get it. Well with the help of the aftermarket double sided key, you can start your lift truck just that much quicker. Not long ago, forklifts came with one sided keys until it was decided the teeth would be cut into both sides. This allows for a quicker start, reducing the time you may be fumbling around with a traditional key. This key is most commonly used on the 7 and 8 series Toyota forklifts.

2) Toyota Forklift Seat

Forklift Seat – part no. 7FGCU25

Forklift seats can take a beating and often need to be replaced. That might give some reason as to why this replacement Toyota forklift seat ranks number 2 on our list of parts. Although designed for Toyota 6 and 7 series forklifts, this seat can be made to fit on almost all forklift brands with a little work. Featuring a wingback style seat, driver safety is increased as you are more protected from sliding off the forklift. This is a black vinyl, semi-suspension seat equipped with a retractable seat belt. This low cost, high quality seat also includes mounting rails.

*Two thumbs up*

Ranking 3rd on the list of most sold Toyota  forklift parts, it’s clear this pad is replaced from time to time.

Filter Kit – part no. 04236-U1100-71

Big number 4 on our list of Toyota forklift parts would be the LPG/Propane Filter Kit. A new fuel regulator can be expensive, and from what I’ve learned, spending less money is a good thing.

Toyota 4Y forklift engine

Toyota has used its 4Y engine for forklifts with size capacities between 1.5 and 3.0 tons since early 1990s.   Toyota forklifts with models proceeded with the number 42 all are equipped with the 4Y engine.

toyota 4y forklift engine intella liftparts

The Toyota 4Y engine dates all the way back to the 1970s.  It was first seen in small light duty trucks such as the Toyota Stout, Hilace, Daihatsu Delta, and Australian built Toyota 4Runners.  Virtually every gasoline or LPG engine used in forklifts today were originally used in automobiles.   The Mazda FE and F2 engines used in Hyster and Yale forklifts were used in Mazda B2000 pickup trucks.  The Mitsubishi 4G63 engine used in Cat and Mitsubishi forklifts was used in Mitsubishi Lancer and Gallant models.  The GM 4.3 liter engine has been used in a variety of Chevy and GMC trucks.  And the Nissan H20 engine was used in a variety of different Nissan car models.  So no surprise that the Toyota 4Y engine got its start in the automotive world.

The 4Y engine has a 2.2 liter displacement with 4 inline cylinders.    It’s typically fitted with an Aisan fuel system of some sort, depending on the emissions rules in the country it’s sold in.  Need firing order, spark plug gap, and other technical info?  Detailed technical specifications can be found here

Toyota owns a portion of many of its suppliers so it comes as no surprise that Aisan is owned by the Toyota group.  The distributor, ignition parts, and electrical system used on the 4Y is made by Toyota owned Denso, and it can truly be said that the majority of the engine and surrounding components are manufactured by either Toyota or Toyota owned suppliers.

Intella offers a variety of parts for the 4Y engines.  We offer overhaul gasket kits, replacement heads, tune up parts.

If your data plate shows a model like these, you can be assured you have a 4Y engine in your forklift:

42-6FGCU15  (42 = 4Y engine code)

If you’re wondering how to determine if your Toyota forklift has a 4Y engine, you can usually figure it out from the data tag of the forklift.

Toyota forklift models typically look like this:  42-6FGCU25.  Let’s decode those letters and numbers.

First off, the first two digits indicate the type of engine in the forklift.  Here are common engine codes

42 = Toyota 4Y engine LPG and gasoline

02 = Toyota  1DZ diesel engine

52 = GM engine typically 6 cylinder 4.3 engine

Now for the rest of the model 6FGCU25

6 is design series.  Toyota started with no number (the first models were simply FGC25, then they moved to 2FGC25, 3FGC, etc, etc)

FGC stands for Forklift Gas (can be gasoline of LPG/propane) Cushion tires.

FDC stands for Forklift Diesel Cushion tires.  FBC Forklift Battery (electric powered) Cushion.

No tire code = pneumatic tires on forklift (default type of tires.  Cushion tires are really only used in North America).

The U designates the factory the forklift was built in.  U = United states, F = France, no letter = Japan.

The number represents the lifting capacity in kilograms/100.  A 25 = 2500kg lifting capacity.  An 18 = 1800kg capacity, etc, etc.

So a 42-6FGCU25 Toyota would be equipped with a Toyota 4Y engine, it’s a 6 series model, it uses either gasoline or propane, it has cushion tires, was made in the United States, and has a lifting capacity of 2500 kilograms.

Toyota forklift maintenance reset

.Do you need to reset the service interval on your Toyota forklift?  Read below to learn how to easily reset the service interval after you perform preventative maintenance on your Toyota forklift.

Q: How do I reset the maintenance hour meter on a Toyota forklift?

A: In order to reset the maintenance hour meter on a Toyota forklift, an administrative password must first be entered in order to reach the administrator menu normally inaccessible to general operators. From this menu, the maintenance hour meter can be set.

In order to complete these steps, certain combinations must be entered in the dashboard display shown below. For reference during these instructions, the four buttons used have been labeled A through D. It may help to familiarize yourself with these instructions before attempting to complete the procedure.Dash Labeled

Entering the administrative password:


1. Press and hold buttons B and D simultaneously for 2 seconds. A short beep should sound both at the beginning of the 2 seconds and after 2 seconds has passed.


2. Press button C within 10 seconds. Another beep should sound. Repeat this by pressing button C once more within 10 seconds, hearing again a short beep.


3. Within 10 seconds, press and hold buttons B and D simultaneously for 2 seconds. Like before, a short beep sounds when B and D are first pressed, but now after 2 seconds, repeated short beeps sound. The administrator menu should be displayed.Toyota Dash 2

Shown above is an example of how the administrator menu might look. To navigate the menu, button A moves down a  list of settings, buttons B and C move from list to list of settings, and button D selects a setting and moves to its individual screen.


Resetting the maintenance hour meter:


1. Locate the setting “MAINTENANCE HR” and use button D to select it. It should look similar to the menu below.Toyota Dash 3


2. To set the time for the maintenance hour meter, buttons A through D have certain functions. Holding Button A for more than 2 seconds resets the current value selected to 0. Button B reduces the set time for the meter, Button C increases the set time for the meter, and Button D returns to the administrator menu screen.

NOTE: Time can be set in 10-hour increments from 10 to 200 hours, then in 50-hour increments from 200 to 2000 hours. It cannot be set below 10 or above 2000 hours.


Locking the operator setting menu (DX model only):


1. Locate the setting “MENU LOCK” and use button D to select it.


2. Locking this menu limits the setting values that can be changed by general operators. Setting to “YES” will prevent the display of the setting menu for an operator. Button B selects “YES,” Button C selects “NO,” and Button D returns to the administrator menu screen.
