I used a valve regrind gasket set from SOR.com

http://www.sor.com/sor/cat032.tam?xax=31787&page.ctx=cat032.tam

Everything fit well, and although not OEM, looked to be about the same quality. 4K after the head gasket replaced and no problems and no re-torque needed. Had everything I needed to reseat the carb, replace the manifolds, and the valve seals, etc.

About $65 if I recall.
After I saw the price of OEM gasket kits followed your link, I was very suprised.
They are almost double price than list price which I know !
I asked the price of valve regriend gasket kit and overhaul gasket for my carburated 3F motor and they informed me about $137 and $182.
But it's $215.81 and $369.99 from SOR's home page :confused:
I asked to Lexus dealer in Korea and they only offers list price without discount.
Wow.... I can't belive....
I've remember that SOR offer products with good price,quality with good customer service always but I can't understand this price....

Oh, Min Seok

The Toyota head gasket is noticeably better than any aftermarket gasket I have seen. I keep hoping thatI will find the OE head gasket in a Victor or fel-pro box someday, but so far no joy.
