Valve cover gasket

Post by irowiki » Fri Nov 08, 2013 2:29 pm

Which valve cover gasket do I need?

Funny thing is both of them claim to be used on 80-86 tercels, but one is clearly different!

those are pretty much the same, but you will also need that half circle plug too. get the top one. you will still need to put sealant on the have circle and in the corners of the front cover where it goes over the front camshaft journal.
