  • Excellent Hino Mechanic for SoCal

    Hello All, I have owned a Bayliner 4788 since 1994 with the original configuration of Hino W06D TI diesels rated at 250 HP. These engines have been excellent for all these years but there comes a time when they do need tune ups and the heat exchangers removed and cleaned out properly.

    I recently found an excellent mechanic that absolutely has been trained and knows Hino diesels! For all of you that do have Hinos I give him the highest recommendation! He did a great job on mine and when we sea trialed them after tuning and cleaning the heat exchangers the boat ran like new. Both engines came up to max RPMs of 3,000 and the boat was doing 19 knots over the bottom! His name is Steven Bush and his phone is 714-833-4984. If you want more info feel free to contact me at [email protected]

    Also for all Hino owners there is an excellent Hino parts source located in Naniamo, British Columbia. Anchorage Marine, carries a huge stock of Hino parts and will ship the next day. The exchange rate is excellent so parts are less expensive through them. They respond to both phone and email immediately. Web site is

    I trust he is not related to the name "James Bush" (Dr Hino) who was on the BOC board often in the past with some larger issues with delivery and payments.
    Heck of a coincidence that he has the same last name though.....

      I don’t know who he is related to. Just posting information regarding the work he did for me in the last few weeks. Excellent work, always on time and I’m very happy with the results.
