    Coolant Drain Location 3888 Hino W04c-TI

    I’ve done a search both here and online but I still don’t know where the best location is to drain the coolant. I read there is a brass petcock near the starter but I sure haven’t found it. Anybody know where i should look or what is the best way to drain everything? Thanks in advance!

      On my W04T Hino, there are two drain outlets, one on the alternator bracket and the other under the manicooler. But that's in a 3270.

      W04 has the lower drain behind the alternator - it's built into the bracket. It's a, east-west facing banjo bolt (14mm wrench) and has a 5/8 (?) hose fitting coming off the bottom of it. It can be easily felt and wrenched by braille. Slip a hose over the fitting and into an aluminum turkey tray on the floor where it's convenient for you to be - dump AF into the tray, lift the hose up high to stop flow, dump the tray into a bucket, repeat. When dry, remove the banjo bolt, clean with a brass wire brush, use never seize and re-install. Move to next engine...

          Here's the location on our Hino 135s. Needless to say, access on the starboard side will be more difficult.
