I recall an LPG conversion on a forklift at EMSA and I am almost sure that was a GM engine!IndianaJones wrote:Undoubtedly they must have been available in forklifts, generators too for that matter, but I've never seen one. Still maintain a marine version is more likely.
I know of a number of forklifts which were previously available in SA, fitted with Continental or Chrysler Industrial flathead engines, though.
But by 1983, I would guess that most forklifts on the market, would be of Japanese origin, as opposed to American origin, and most operators probably had switched to diesel forklifts, unless they specifically wanted to use LPG.
