We bought a ford tractor forklift (used) and we are trying to identify the model and serial number. There is a model number written in magic marker that says 452GT. Is this a real model number? Does anyone know where to look for the serial numbers on these machines? It has a three cylinder diesel engine. Thanks in advance for any info.

We sold one of those backward Ford fork lists back in about 1962.It was mounted on the frame of a 600 gas 4 cylinder tractor.The one thing that stands out in my mind was the way it was steered. It had a system of steering that was controlled by pushing and pulling a geared cable that passed through a driving gear under the steering wheel and the cable went to the control valve assembly under the hood. We had to go and replace that cable every week for the at least 3 or 4 months because that is how long it would last. Finally had to almost eat the fork lift and take it back on trade to satisfy the customer. Sold it to another dealer and he had the same nightmare with the steering cable set up. Don't know where it ever ended up but I know that was the worst steering setup I have ever seen.

Should be stamped on top of bellhousing just rear of the starter (or should I say foward of starter).
