We bought one new in 1985 for the family and the only thing we did to it for well over 250k was replace the timing chain. You couldn't overheat the damn thing either. We tried in Death Valley with the AC running and going up hill but it wouldn't get hot.

Then we had a cargo version for the business and the only thing that stopped it was a major accident. That thing just went and went with minor PM.
I have never heard anyone complain about the HG before Hino? Sorry but I don't buy the whole "guarenteed" HG failure stuff.
Anyways TXSurfer, depending upon vehicle condition, I say go for it. If it breaks down, leave it on the side of the road.
