Are you running thru the tractor LP Filter when you are running it off the forklift tank? Possibly a clogged filter? That would be my first guess. Is there any possibility of a mud dauber nest in the tractor lines? Or some other obstruction?
By the way on my '65 M670-LP it had a about 8 inch piece of rubber flexable hose [factory made hose like hyd. hose] on the input to the filter and it ran within 4-6 in. of the back end of the exhaust manafold. one day I had the tractor running on vapor and was off the tractor and it decided to rupture (over 50 years old) and spray LP vapor on the warm exhaust manafold. Things were getting very warm when I got the valve shut on the other side of the tractor. Scorched the hairs on my arms. I made a heat shield and also wrapped the new flex hose in alum. foil.

I cleaned and blew out all the lines (all copper), cleaned the filter housing and installed a new filter. Originals ain't easy to find any more! The hose from the forklift tank is hooked to the "T" ahead of the filter, so I know the filter is flowing good. I'll get my forklift tank filled today, and put some more in the tractor tank. Thanks for the suggestions.

Just run it off the forklift tank, I run mine off a BBQ tank, it'll run along time as long as you're not using it on a heavy load.
