    I got a bunch from the dealer. Toyota engineers know best.

    None. Bone Stock. EXCEPT: Brushguard, tow hitch, both welded to the frame. It's good to have friends and a fully equipped garage!
    ^^ This.

    Always go with OEM if at all possible, and they're not very expensive at all from the dealership. I always get my new crush washers from my local dealer. Also, always get extras. You need 5, get 7. If you don't, you'll need them, invariably.
    If you don't need them for this job, you've got them for next time.

    Good luck! Pat☺

    Hey thanks! I have enough for this round, but now on ebay they want several shekels EACH. I wanted a kit. got 6 from a dealer. can't deal with local dealer because it's a long and expensive round trip to get to the right dealer. so my dealer is online. thanks for the input guys, i appreciate it. BTW, i got down to the rat poop and grease deck under the intake plenums. it's getting interesting down there. new injectors tomorrow, hoping they finally kill the miss so i can start doing important stuff. like drive it on the logging roads, stuff like that. Heh

    There's several different washers needed per vehicle. Cold Start injector top and bottom, Fuel pulsation damper, FPR, etc. The only ones I've seen included with the part they're intended for is the fuel filter washers.

    Those are for the oil drain plug. On my 87's, I never changed them. I should have, but I didn't. Never had a leak, though. Anywho, there's a lot used in one of our trucks, and they come in several different sizes.

    Remember as well, to NEVER reuse them. Even if you just tighten down onto one to te point of slight deformation, it can't be reused. That's another good reason to get extras BTW. I almost always put a part on, need to remove it for some idiot reason, and then put it back on again. If I only have the bare minimum needed, back to the dealer for more! If I get too many before I start, I never need the extras. Murphy rides in my back seat, I think...

    Good luck!

    Whoops, yeah he was asking for the fuel system but he posted a link to oil washers. I was a little confused.

    You can't use the oil washers for the fuel system.
