View Full Version : Wanted: headgasket for 2F

03-28-2007, 05:00 PM
OEM only :)

$165 or so from Burt Toyota :eek: Anyone know of other places they are available for hopefully a better price? Or does anybody have one sitting around they'd be willing to part with? I didn't expect the head gasket to cost as much as the head work :eek:

While Ige may disagree i've used felpro head gaskets for 2f's a couple times will no ill effects. For $70 you get the valve grind kit which has intake, exhaust, guides, and head gasket at napa.

What about CDan (cruiserdan) over on IH8MUD? I know he is the parts guru mentioned for 80 series so I imagine he can get any available Toyota OEM parts for you. You may already know about him but if not he works at a Toyota dealership in NM and apparently has awesome prices for OEM stuff.

Romer can give you better details than I. I hear they are real close :D

You're in a coma (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coma)? Or using a comma (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comma_%28punctuation%29), a form of punctuation?

Matt must be a Dem....he shifts the attention off the question by pointing out the mistakes! :lmao: :hill:

I remember reading about a few people on mud who went aftermarket and regretted it.

I have 4 or 5 aftermarket head gaskets - free if you like. I am going to use the OEM one Romer hooked me up with in my dad's truck.

I used an aftermarket head gasket on my old '75 FJ40, and ended up replacing it within 12 months. The Toyota gasket was completely unique.

I read somewhere (ih8mud, probably) that if you go to a forklift/industrial parts supplier, the head gaskets for the 2F engines are something like half the price, and they are the same OEM part. My understanding was that Toyota made forklifts with the 2F (propane, if I'm not mistaken) that use the same head-gasket, and that the price regulations are different for industrial suppliers.

I've never verified this though, so it may be worth doing a search over at ih8mud to see if I misunderstood. Either way, I don't know of a local shop that sells the parts for Toyota forklifts, but it's worth a shot.

Matt, you are a stud. :thumb: I called up Materials Handling in Denver and they have part # 11115-61010 for $25.66! :eek: :D

I checked that that was the right part number for my truck, so hopefully there won't be any problem!

Sweet deal dude! I wonder what they want for forklift propane tanks...:smokin:

04-02-2007, 07:41 PM
Awesome, I'm glad to hear that it worked out for you. I might call them up and get one for myself just in case I need one someday :)

You can check online to get an idea:

http://www.toyotapartscheap.com (Mossy Toyota)
http://www.1sttoyotaparts.com (Bob Bridge Toyota)
http://toyotaworld.com (Champion Toyota)

The price comes up at Mossy as:
Item Number MSRP Core Price Price
1111561010 $149.00 $0.00 $119.20

At Bob Bridge:
Item Number MSRP Core Price Price
1111561010 $149.00 $0.00 $107.28

FWIW, C-Dan's price quotes for me come closer to Mossy than Bob Bridge's. It seems that Bob Bridge pricing is awfully close to cost. And, yes, Dan can get anything Toyota, not just Cruiser.

For all those wondering, Dave's post got me to thinking so I did some checking. I was planning to order a bunch of stuff for the LX and 80 from CDan and he provided me a quote with prices...I took that quote and checked the prices against the above places. To my surprise Dan's prices WERE higher than say Bob Bridge's.

BUT that isn't the end of the story...Dan's price INCLUDED shipping (UPS ground) as where Bridge's did not. Shipping from Bridge was 10% of order total which when added in made the price between CDAN and Bridge almost identical (think there was like $5 difference). Example would be quote from CDan for $450 total incl shipping. Bridge's quote of $405 + $40.50 shipping = $445.50

Now the difference would vary based on what you are buying of course, especially if you are buying a lot or some real expensive stuff as that 10% would get high real quick :eek:.

Anywho, just wanted to add in some info for folks searching later on best prices for Toyota parts. I went with CDan, for the service and to keep the voodoo doll's of his in the closet! :hill:

Good point Dave! I don't think you can go wrong any which way. For me it was keeping those damn voodoo dolls of CDan's at bay. :lmao:

Plus I've become more of an "online shopper". Must be getting lazy :hill:
