newbie Hino 1976 owner

Post by customhinowa »

Hi
I have recently taken on a 1976 Hino bus chassis with a custom body motorhome and being a classic BMW guy I have no idea where to start looking for parts and assistance with the various projects that will pop up. I would prefer not to use the mainstream Hino dealer unless I have no choice due to the age of the vehicle and hopefully I will learn a few things

Thanks for the reply. Flat 6 cylinder NA with pre select (semi auto?) I am used to the VIN when tracking parts for my BMW's is it a similar system for trucks/buses?
