I have this fork lift and the carb is trash. I was wondering what engine it is. I think it's an A14, If not will this carb still fit. http://tinyurl.com/oyzlv6p. Thanks
sorry for the bad pics.
and the valve cover says, DATSUN PU.

Go to these two ebay sellers, look at the pictures on each one.
Notice each carb has a counterweight on the secondary shaft at the base of the carb and other features that match.

to the intake manifold on the pictures.
Ok so i've figured out that the forklift's engine is a D11 and am wondering if you might know of a carb that will work. Thanks for the help.

Nothing like digging up an old topic. We bought an old FG 103 forklift, good deal. Have the same problem, needs carb & crank pulley. Should
have known about the smoking deal. Any help would be appreciated. Didn't know where else to look for help.

You might try bolting up a carb from an early 70's Datsun car or truck. Or even a Weber DGV. I bet the bolt pattern on the manifold is similar to the L series or A series carburetors.
I have a mid 80's Mitsubishi forklft that was running like crap and the forklift specific carb was outragously expensive, so I bought a single barrel VW carb (Solex 30 PICT) to make it simpler to work on. Ultimately I didn't end up using it. Instead, I took the stock carb apart and modified it internally to work more like a street driven carb, and it works fine.
What problem are you actually having?

All the datsun powered forklifts I have come across in the US have been J13 or J15 engines. Look under the #3 and 4 spark plug on the block the should be a stamped #.

If all you need is a carb then I would put a Weber 32/36 and jet as needed. Find a gasket that fits the intake and this should tell you what you need for an adapter for the Weber. Pierce Manifolds might be able to help Identify the engine and set you up with a carb.

For simplicity you could use a new Ford Falcon 1bbl carb, 2 bolt pattern and cheap from RockAuto:
This would be a start, but its a small CC displacement and is similar to the E/J series and Austin motors... could go propane too but is it worth all the effort?
