M10A Forklift--Needed Parts

I know Eastern would outsource the kits and do the same as any supplier would in this situation.

I've had 5 units, still have two. Problems I've had are mainly brakes and hoses, both obvious wear components. The engines have been solid and they are dependable machines as long as you work at their pace. I wish they were quick disconnect equipped so they could take a bucket without major work. I know injection pump, control valves (hydraulic), and seals are hard to come by. I had a source for good quality surplus tires too but they dried up. I won't part with my pair of machines as I use them to off load dead trucks weekly.
OK, Thanks for your input!! I don't plan on separating with mine either... and yes the lack of a quick disconnect for a bucket is too bad....but I guess one can't have everything, at least for the price I got mine for.... I just got to get this oil drip on the sideshirt cylinder fixed!! I appreciate your response. Regards, Mark

Helllo Guy, Thanks for the update....I've had no further progress on any other leads....Well, I used the forklift today, it's dripping about 10-15 drops of oil per minute when the engine is running and the hydraulic pump has pressurized the system..I fashioned a "drip-pan" for catching the oil out of a cut down .30 Cal. ammo can.....and so I continue to "march". Send me an e-mail to the hotel and I'll get back to you privately. Don't want to clog up the S.S. blog/thread page with non-vehicle personal stuff.

Hey Guy/fang, any news on the M10A Hydra. Cylin. part kit? I may have found a shop here who says it "should" be no problem to overhaul the cylinder and match the seals and o-rings by size. Well, I probably won't have much of a choice when I consider what the price of a seal "kit" probably will be from the USA... But Iam a little sceptical about a POLISH shop...I suppose we will see.

Hi, Don't know. I am sure I'll have to remove the cylinder and take it in for them to have a look and make an estimate.
