What lp system does it have? Has it been updated to the Impco lock off and regulator? Pr does it have the original regulator in the end of the water manifold? But first, let's look at the lp connector to the bottle. The connection will have NO gaskets or o'rings on the forklift end. all gaskets are in the bottle. If there are gasket or o'ring on the forklift connection m the bottle connection will not open the valve and forklift will get no fuel. What does forklift have for fuel shutoff? An electric fuel shutoff solenoid valve? Does it have 12 volts when key is turned on?
