In the aftermath of World War 2, Hino had converted some of its plants into barracks which could house the military occupational forces. Because railroad tracks all over Japan had been severely damaged by the war, the occupation forces wanted more trucks constructed and assigned Hino to manufacture 1500 units per month. The company gathered its employees and begin establishing plans for this as well as the development of a state of the art heavy truck which Shoji Okubo, the plant director, believed would be needed during Japan’s postwar reconstruction.

The one thing that all automobile A/C units have in common is that they operate via the circulation of liquid refrigerant. While this works most of the time, it does make the system vulnerable to leakage. While leaks can be difficult to detect at first, signs that your A/C has a leakage issue include sudden windshield fogging and damp areas on floor mats. The liquid will eventually cause a buildup of mildew which can cause additional damage.
If you detect noise when turning the A/C off or on like squealing or clattering that means you might have a problem with the compressor. Most vehicle A/C systems are factory sealed with a specific level of refrigerant which is referred to as the charge. During a leak the refrigerant will escape, preventing the vehicle from cooling itself normally, so browse for Hino 268 A/C parts now and enjoy the best prices online!
