Default Pettibone/Mercury GS-30 forklift

I need the engine compartment shrouds for my Pettibone/Mercury GS-30 (3,000#)fork lift. I need both the right and left side covers. I'll take one if you have one, or both.

I just had the hydraulic pump fixed and the fork controls work like new . No one knows where the pumps internal pressure plate spring dissappeared to . What a job taking it out and putting it back in a few times. The rebuilder put the vane ring in backwards . Normal operation is clockwise, but the pump in this application runs counter clockwise and it was even marked that way on the housing . No extra charge, except I had to go back a few times to get it right. I had to remove the entire clutch assembly including the clutch plate, drop one of the controlling hydraulic cylinders and disconnect the hoses each time . Sure was a lot of room to work in . In the process, I removed a few broken off flush bolts from it's previous life. What a oily dirty mess, but it's all done and cleaned up and now I'm on "BREAK" . THANKS-Paul
