Get 4 of NAPA part # 704-1076 ~$2 each IIRC.

It's an oring. Remove the stock center cover and use the orings on the 4 14mm hex plugs.

OR

Go to Toyota and spend ~$50 on a new center cover. ( 11219-42020 )

If you need more than the hex plug gaskets, the center cover is the gasket... Rubber is molded around the metal cover, and can only be replaced by buying a new cover. They aren't very expensive though.

The only thing that the center cover is the gasket for is the hex head plugs. That's why I said to get 4 of the orings from NAPA. The edges near the valve covers don't seal anything, the valve cover gaskets get that part.

It's up to the owner what they want to do. If you like having the cover, keep it. If not, use the orings.

BTW, half the time even a new 3rd valve cover ends up leaking again soon (mine did).
