    eBay item number:
    382304662926

    Warning!!!

    However, they are not the same part number as OEM Valve Locks for the 2TG or 18RG. These were sourced from the Toyota 8-RC which fits and locks these valves in place with the 2TG and 18rg Valve spring retainers. Not OEM but should match your requirements for Valve Locks.
    Hi 73GTV,
    I have received these keeper but not fit, they are for thinner valves type 2T engines. The solution would to be rectify them, but very difficult for small conical pieces.

    Are you using old OEM parts on a new head or have you upgraded to new parts, valves, new valve spring retainers and the suggested items for the new set-ups.

    So here in the US, since the 2TG and 18RG was not sold as stock engines, some of us have had to use after market parts for the 2T and 3T series to modify our heads. You can only use old valves seal stem seals for so long until that source drys up. Do your research and buy whatever you can to make your build work. New day, new parts, different direction! Sourcing valve seats has proven to be a challenge but if you want to use oversize valves and new metal, you have to measure and find something close to have machined to fit and seats cut to fit the new metal...

    I did post a warning!!
