Hello people,

I will get straight to the point here. Did Hino manufacture the H series engines for Toyota Landcruiser or not? All research conducted so far has not revealed conclusive proof from any official source, ie Toyota's/Hino's websites. All evidence comes from forums or reviews and hearsay so the arguement lies therein.

Can anyone offer conclusive proof of this?

Cheers.

Hino has always been the truck division of toyota just like lexus is the luxury division. Of course there are a few small trucks that toyota market such as the dyna.

Hino merged with Toyota in 1967 but has been around in one form or another since 1912. So I would be fairly confident that Hino did make that motor as diesel engines were a speciality.

Maybe the H on the motor ID relates to Hino

I think Hino is a sub city (if that's the right classification) of greater Tokyo.

Old bloke at the 4WD club had a 2H and told me the H stood for Hino... don't know if that's conclusive proof, but I believed him :)

I sent one final shout after him to stick to the track, to which he replied “All right,” That was the last ever seen of Gibson - E Giles 23 April 1874

And no, I don't think subaru would have lowered themselves to build dirty straight 6 tojo diesels..........Spoken by someone who owns both sube and toyota.

Up until 2003 Toyota owned only about 20% of Hino, Hino manufactured some Toyota vehicles under a licence agreement and supplied Toyota with some light duty vehicles.

In 2003 Hino became a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Company.

There would of been a good chance of Hino being involved with the development of the 2H as at that time Toyota was more into petrol engine manufacturing then diesels.

Much the same as Yamaha designed and built engines for Toyota.... most of the twin cam engines were Yamaha designed and built.

I am sure that I read somewhere that the 1hz was built by Hino, good thing really as I know of a Hino 6 cylinder truck motor that had done 15000hrs six years ago and is still working today in a concrete aggi.
