New radiator on its way. Changing it over to an all-aluminum one that I think I matched up. New back tires coming the one tire had a back side wall. I ordered a propane conversion kit.

I am finally able to get steel delivered by 18 wheeler and unload it with my forklift.

I have new back tires. they were split rims so it was simple for me to replace them. I bought a load range better because I plan on keeping it a long time.

I ordered a fuel pump for a Datsun truck and was able to take the new parts and totally rebuild my old pump works good now. I bought a carb for the same truck and that is working good.
my propane kit came in but need time to install it. For now it is running good on gas.
need to install the new radiator soon.
I bought 60" forks for it. much simpler to unload semi as they put the pallets in the center of the flatbed.

need to fix ebrake but normal brakes work.

I found a aluminum radiator on amazon. It is close to old one but I had to modify forklift some to make it fit. Forklift radiators are very expensive this one was very reasonably priced. Saved hundreds it was worth the effort.
Added cheap LED $19 lights to the front Wow they are great. Replaced the alternator with a reasonably priced Datsun pickup one direct replacement.

I used the fork lift so much last week. I tool 15,000 pounds of scrap to the scrap yard. They paid me just under 1K for all of it.

I bought a new seat with a seatbelt from eBay big improvement
Changed the oil and new oil filter.

It now has a new water pump.
It is running great very useful.
New parts so far.
carburetor
aluminum radiator
spark plugs oil/filter.
LED lights
Seat
Back tires. /lug nuts
60” forks ( This was a must to unload semi truck at my driveway. They load the truck bed in the middle. Shot forks can drag the pallet to the edge to get a full bite on the pallet.)
The fan bolts to a pulley the wrong bolts were used and it oblong the holes. It was making a clanking sound. I cut out a new pulley front out of 11gauge steel.
And welded it on. It is quite now. It is cool to just draw out a part and cut in on my CNC plasma table.
