I have a seal saver you can have if needed.

How do you get shafted by cheap parts, and immediately look at beck and arnley to replace said failed cheap part :shake:

Anything that requires heavy lifting and or long labor time to repair should use TOYOTA only parts or trusted aftermarket

Hey 299k,

In your usual provocative style.. that's a fair question.  But, I'm not 100% sure yet I bought "cheap" parts.  And when looking for parts, why would I not look at an identifiable brand after a concern for possible defective or quality issues?

Yes... I have learned, from this rebuild, that the gaskets and seals and gasket sealers should be considered as a VERY important part selection on a rebuild!!!  The extra $$$ cost means nothing to me when I have to fix a leak!!!!  Toyota does not make their gaskets, seals, and rubber parts.... but their replacement parts seem to have a reputation that they work.  There are other suppliers and manufacturers that have an equal reputation for quality.  I don't recall having issues with seals, gaskets, or gasket sealer in my past maintenance or rebuilds on any other Toyota engine.

Thank you for the offer of the seal saver.
