It doesn't take much to crank these over, just whatever battery that will fit in there. My forklifts always ended up with leftover batteries of some sort.

I have a Clark close to the same vintage (71) and it doesn't steer without the engine off. Steering shaft doesn't want to move without pump pressure.

Well I got a tank and a battery.
I got it to run but the engine was racing.
I pull the coil wire to kill it.
I turned the key off but it did not turn off I have found some burnt wires that I need to trace.
After killing the engine I could smell propane and could hear it leaking.
I think the regulator needs rebuilt
Also there is no air filter or housing

Check the propane system, to make sure that the lock off is working, it should be the first thing connected to the line from the tank, with either a wire or a vacuum hose connected to it, with out either power or vacuum it should not allow propane to pass. If it doesn't have one you should get one.

Well it must have been a fluke the propane is fine now.
The engine was racing because without the gas pedal hooked up it is at wide open.
So I got it to idle
After adding over a gallon of hydraulic fluid still no steering.
I think I will crack the lines open to see if there is fluid.

I have added almost 3 gallons of hydro fluid. It will come up to full on the dipstick. After I run the engine it doesn't register on the dipstick.
So this morning I check the engine oil level and it is way overfull.
The hydro pump on this engine is bolted directly to the engine. I am thinking there is a diaphragm like on older cars fuel pumps that is leaking

Nope. Your Hydraulic pump is fucked.
There is a shaft seal and when the bearings get loose and the shaft can flop around, the seal fails and the oil leaks out of the pump in your case, into the engine sump.
I've had this issue in transmission driven pumps and you have hyd oil coming out the trans breather. I was in the bush, so I put a nipple into the breather and a hose to recirculate the oil from the trans to the hydraulic tank.

I would not recommend this in your case

I have investigated that many times, these were on 25 and 40 gallon pumps, probably larger then yours. I would send them in and get a written estimate. A new pump cost would be 1300 and I would be quoted 1100 to rebuild.
There is a reason to rebuild, if it is a rare or out of production pump. All I am saying is check the numbers carefully. They can tell you the gpm and the type of drive, be it keyed, slot, spline, etc and then shop around. Burden Surplus comes to mind.
