What's the best service manual for a Ford forklift

Welcome Guest, Log in or Register

Report to Moderator


I have a Warner Swasey Ford forklift.

The numbers by the starter are 41400, which after looking through these forums tells me the following:
4=4000 with 172 gas or diesel engine
1=1963 or newer
40=Heavy Duty Industrial
0=4 speed W/no PTO

I have two questions that I hope some of you can answer:

1. As mention above the 41400 number indicates a 172 gas or diesel. The current engine I have is a four-cylinder diesel with the numbers CONN 6015C on the side. From these forums I found that that 6015 engine is a 144 diesel not a 172. Am I misunderstanding something here and/or is this not the stock motor that came with this forklift?

2. I found references that this forklift chassis is part of the 801 series of tractors. Would the 801 family type be the best service manual to purchase to cover my motor and chassis? Would it cover the 144 diesel motor?

If you need more info please let me know.

Hi Lauren, Snitkawl is correct the Ford Tractor manual is the best manual for your Forklift. I also have the same forklift myself but with a gas engine and yours does have a 172 Diesel engine according to your casting number. If you need parts manuals for your machine email me. Where are you located, I live in Mass. Thanks Tony Jacobs

Hi Tony, when reading your message to Lauren about the manuals I was wondering where to go get this brand of manual ordered. I would like to have your help. Thanks Chuck

Hey Chuck,

I sent Tony an email asking about the manuals, but he might be gone for the holidays. I haven't gotten a response.

I ordered the "MANUAL 4000 ('62-'64), 4-Cyl, Ind Service Manual (W), PN: FO-S-2,4000" from this website ('Yesterdays Tractor' see the weblink provided in this post). I'm still a little apprehensive that it is going to prove to be a good manual for this machine. I'll provide an update to how well the manual matches the machine.

Lauren from Michigan

Hi Lauren, Thanks for the up date. I was talking to Antique Tractor and Equipment (1 800 892 7782) and they told me that warner/swasey is still around but different name I'm in the process of getting it from them. They also told me that my tractor frame is a 3500 ford chassis. I would like to talk to you My # 530 842 1976 Yreka Calif. I'll be home most of the time up to Xmas but other than that leave a message and I'll call you back. Thanks Chuck

We used to have one of those. It was some years ago, and I had no idea what chassis it was mounted on at the time. If I had it to do over I would still have it for the tractor if not the forklift.
I think the manual for the 801/4000 would be the best for you. It is bacically an industrial tractor with the forklift added. If it is like ours it also had a shuttle transmission. It should have the 172 engine, but if it has been changed, the same manual covers both engines.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
