For some reason..I have this mental picture of you driving around with
the back of your pickup filled with Surplus....with one of these on
your head and a mad grin on your face...
It does not, but I do have a boom crane laying around right now.
I planned to sell it, but maybe I can mount it on the trailer?
It is a National Knuckle Boom Crane:
I am reluctant to install it, because it will reduce the capacity of
my semi trailer by 4-5k lbs.

Sell it and wait for a whole knuckle boom truck. What a back-saver!
Knowing you, you'll find the chrome plated boom on a truck for $5, and
the only problem it has is that it needs one spark plug wire. ;)
There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.
Ill have to check and see what Carb and exchanger is on it. I think
the exchanger is a F5 or something. Got Impco Parts? Ill check and
post what I need.
I need to rebuild the carb and likely the heat exchanger. Carby most

and the whole top end kit is $100. And the forklift is still sitting
at the end of my driveway 8 months later....damnit.
Gunner, who wrote it down and now cant find it...damnit.
We converted one forklift to propane and fixed another forklift's
propane carb system. I did not do it, my driver did, who is an all
around handy person. Based on that experience, I think that most
forklift propane related parts are very similar and many are
interchangeable. Impco makes those propane conversion kits, it is not
something super unusual. I bought a couple of pallets of propane kits
and carbs last July. (also about four crates of forklift manuals for
