Rock auto sells Asin which is generally regarded as oem equivalent (in most cases it is oem).

As for gaskets, I've had good luck with felpro and beck arnley...... however, I've noticed that more and more beck arnley stuff is saying made in China on it. You're best option is Toyota.

I've been running Mobil synthetic 15w-50 in my 60 for 3years. It's got the good stuff in it. If you have leaks, a full syn may not be a good option. I also ran an oil pan heater in the winter.

I'm sure others will chime in......

I run Shell Rotella T 15W-40 year round... It may not be the best in the winter but I keep forgetting to change it out.

It's high zinc and $11.99 for 5 qts when its on sale. Dont forget to pick up two jugs as the 2F holds 8.5 qts with a filter change. I always run Wix filters

When I rebuilt my 2F, Toyota sold a complete kit . It was well priced if you got the full rebuilt kit for the top and bottom end. Separately, each was almost what I paid for both.
