Why Are Distributor Caps Important?

Forklift distributor caps help keep the forklift running smoothly by ensuring that the fluid levels are correct and that there is no leakage. Leakage can cause problems because it can contaminate the fluid levels and make them incorrect. This contamination can damage the forklift, other materials, or equipment.

Fluid level contamination can involve the introduction of dirt, dust, or other debris into the fluid levels. Dust and dirt can be a significant problem because they can cause equipment to break down. They can also contaminate the fluid levels in machines. This contamination can cause them to become muddy or dirty and affect their ability to lubricate and protect the forklift.

Signs That You Need To Replace The Cap

Forklift distributor caps can wear down over time. To avoid contamination, companies need to have a good supply on hand so that they can replace them. Here are some signs of the cap failing to block grime:

  • The forklift is not running smoothly
  • There is fluid leakage
  • The fluid levels are incorrect
  • The distributor cap is damaged or worn down

If any of these problems occur, it is crucial to replace the forklift distributor cap as soon as possible. Otherwise, contamination should start immediately.

How To Replace A Forklift Distributor Cap

Replacing a forklift distributor cap is not a complex process. Knowing what to do, however, can save you time during regular business hours. Here are the necessary steps:

1. Shut down the forklift and disconnect the battery.

2. Loosen the clamp that holds the distributor in place.

3. Remove the old distributor cap and install the new one.

4. Reconnect the battery and start up the forklift.

5. Test the forklift to make sure that it is running smoothly.

If the forklift is not running smoothly, or if there are any other problems, it is important to contact a qualified technician who can provide further expertise.
