The methodology of the left has always been:
1. Lie
2. Repeat the lie as many times as possible
3. Have as many people repeat the lie as often as possible
4. Eventually, the uninformed believe the lie
5. The lie will then be made into some form oflaw
6. Then everyone must conform to the lie

My semi tractor/trailer is kind of a wrecker, it has a beavertail trailer and a winch. We used it already to move various heavy duty trucks that I parted out or will do so.

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.

Fun! Think they'll get the reserve price of $18.4k? Me, neither.

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. ;)

I will see... I decided that this year in business I will not be acquiring any capital equipment, just making money with what I have. But I see your point. :)

I have a lot of forklift carb parts.

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 of all. The kits were around $30 each, but they redesigned the carby 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 $50)
