The best suggestion would be to repair it before it wears a hole in the cover somewhere. Then you will either start pouring oil out or even worse water in the oil.
Does Marlin carry these steel guides? What about NAPA or a Toyota dealer? I would think that if a steel-backed guide broke, you'd have a lot worse damage from metal getting crunched around than just harmless plastic getting chewed up.
It's a '91. I'm not convinced it's even necessary to clean out the pan, but since I went this far, plus bought a new gasket, I might as well finish the job. I don't know how well just bolting it back on is gonna work,with the old gasket. Think it'll leak?
It was just crazy to see this deer leap all suicidal style off this embankment right in front of us.

Good work; glad it got fixed before it was "too late"... sorry to hear about the oil pan though; that's not 100% fun to deal with.Quick thread-jack here: Will the 20R's double row timing set fit on single row engines? I don't see why not but I haven't been around Toyota engines much (yet). >>Dan
