I can,t take credit for finding this thing. Herm Kruger gets that honor, he found it in Boise ID. and went and got it and brought it back East. These were made for case at Shefield AL. the same co. that made the forklift for case. So it will go with its brother to shows once i get it all prettyed up. That is a 12 and half hp wisconsin, and herm con,t get it to run, i foul with it a couple of days and was talking to my good friend Jim Oberlin in Pa.and he said he used to work on them and thought he might have a book on that engine, and he did and sent it to me the next day after reading it, i hadcheck everything except the govener, it told me how to set it, after that it runs perfect and will stick that chain straight down in tough dirt, a little over 4 ft. 4 or 5 inches wide. The front has 330lbs on it, 165 on each wheel. I weigh wheel and all the weigths on each side. So with the help of two good friends i have this in colletion. If i can answer any questions i will and i plan on having an on going restore for you all to look at. 190forklift aka Steve.
