Namco fork lift

Postby Steve Butram » Fri Nov 27, 2009 2:03 pm

I just picked this up to move stuff around the shop . It has an Onan engine in it and runs on propane. I haven't been to successful in finding any information on it.

Probably Schaeff company. http://www.ritchiewiki.com/wiki/index.p ... ff#History

If you can find the model and serial number, you could probably come up with more information.

Seperate information should be available on the Onan engine and hydraulic components - once identified.

Thanks Eugene I'm surprised that there is no web site out there that deals with these. I'm spoiled by this site :lol:

It is a LC 2015 Serial # 7211906


It will need some new tires in the future but it will be fine fore the winter I plan on repainting it sometime. And depending on what the starter costs to repair I may think about re-powering it with another engine

http://www.schaeffinc.com/selectdealer.asp

A list of Schaeff dealerships.

Couple of suggestions. E-mail the Schaeff corporation and ask their engineering/archive/historical department it they have any information on your lift.

Contact the Schaeff dealership in your area, asking for same information.

Starter for Onan engine. Onan parts are still available - expensive. The starter should/will be still available. It will take some research. Typically the starter was used by several engine manufacturers. Look for the same starter but used on say a Briggs engine - will be cheaper.

Other lift parts will/should be available - after identification.

Cool Steve

I have a electric Joe. But I have to push it around and it only lifts a 1000lbs about 60". That forklift looks really handy :{_}: :{_}: :{_}: :{_}:

That motor looks like a CCK or CCK A Onan. Very common 25 30 yrs. ago. Available in everything from Garden Tractors to RV generators. Starters were very durable. A common problem was the wire becoming disconnected on the pos. stud. inside the starter. A little difficult to get at but definately repairable.
