    Hino Heat Blankets Really Needed?-gctid814558

    My turbine and exhaust blankets need to be replaced. The two quotes that I received are approximately $550 for both engines.

    Then, a Hino mechanic said that they aren't really necessary, that the main purpose was to keep someone from burning themselves while in the bilge. He said that the blankets have no performance benefits.

    Opinion from the crowd...Really needed or not?

    Any suggestion on suppliers?

    Thanks.

        Most early Bayliners 84/86 had Dry Turbos on the Hinos,just keep in mind that the hatch (wood) is just inches away in the 38/45s.i think the 32s might have a little more clearance ?? We replaced ie Earl Summerville ours with 310 turbos.

        Good luck Brad

          If your turbo is water cooled no blanket needed. Some third party turbos are dry, ie no cooling can get pretty hot.
