    Before you get the installed price: 1) what are you willing to pay for this upgrade ? 2) what are you expecting the quote to be ?

    Hey ! Your local wrecker guy has bills to pay too. Call him. Sleep in. Be productive until you hear from the dealer.

    Hino vs Freightliner M2 vs International Durastar

    With those choices you probably feel like I felt last time I walked into a voting booth.

    That’s illegal. We don’t discuss illegal things here. Unless it concerns a van, and the poster is well liked.

    2012 Hino 258 No Power

    I came in to make a snarky comment about no power being standard out of the factory. Then I read the thread, with it’s interesting conclusion and wonder if this is the first time Greasy learned something from us .

    2012 Hino 258 Clear/Light brown Oil in air tanks?? Air pressure problem?

    When I read hydraulic fluid I thought pink AF ? Maybe mixed with a small amount of residual oil.

    IMHO, every week is a weird week for Hinos.

    2012 Hino 258 Clear/Light brown Oil in air tanks?? Air pressure problem?

    Have you replaced the air governor ? You can unhook the line coming off the compressor to be sure it’s pumping on your truck. If so, check output pressure. If good, just start working downline. See where it stops. Somebody more mechanical may come up with a better answer.....

    Hino 308 Battery Wiring

    Two things I learned as an expediter. I took many detailed pictures of my battery connections. I then drew a drawing, labeled for my maintenance file. Then, when I’d clean them, I’d count wires per stud, remove nut, and zip tie the eyelets together. Not tightly, but tight enough not to get lose...

    2012 Hino 338

    That makes sense with today’s closed systems. Years ago I remember a friend telling a rookie to practice his timing. If he got the right rythym he could check the oil on a running engine.

    Hino 195 Winter storage/Oil change

    Sitting three months does he need an Algecide in the fuel tanks? In my 40 years, I never used any. My trucks seldom sat, and fuel is so much different than years ago.

    Hino 195 Winter storage/Oil change

    The fuel water seperator should be drained maybe once per month and when parking at the end of the season. The water should settle to the bottom. You only drain out water droplets, not fuel. If you’re getting good fuel, maybe only a thimble full at a time. So little that it won’t need...

    Hino 195 Winter storage/Oil change

    If you can get by 9 month’s per year, be thankful. I’m limited by my body too. Too specialized to hang a plow ?

    Hino 195 Winter storage/Oil change

    My question got me curious enough to google an answer. Def will freeze at 11 degrees F. At 32.5 ratio to water they both freeze and thaw at the same rate. Freezing/thawing will not degrade the product. Per Cummins.
