    LoL, the title of your thread gives the incorrect impression that you purchased the machine from us! :D

    Sounds like you've had some interesting problems. A Volvo that keeps an operator at the edge of his nerves for fear of sudden rapid deceleration (operator testing law of inertia), and the Hyster that wants to run but just can't. :tong

    I like your idea of installing an electric pump at tank and finding the air leak, pretty clever. You said you brazed the line, it now doesn't leak, but you would like to replace it because you don't like "patching things". Hmmm, sounds to me like you've "repaired" the line, not patched it. If you did a good braze job, it doesn't leak, sounds good to me. Call it repaired, pat yourself on the back, and let it roll. :drinkup

    That's pretty cool OCR. I would like to know more about the history of Hyster. In my experience, they build darn good forklifts. Just as good as other brand warehouse lift brands (Yale, Clark, Cat/Mitsubishi), as well as heavy lift brands like Pace Arrow. They are darn good machines. And, if it's in good shape, they are well worth the money to keep them in good operating condition. :)
