Hyster model number would be like H30 or H40. S/N you have listed is no help. Do you have a picture of the unit? Look at the engine, does it have a power steering pump with a reservoir on the pump? Or is the power steering pump using the hydraulic fluid from the reservoir ,that the forks and mast use? Is engine a flat head or overhead valve engine?
