MB Owner with a Toyota Question

I understand that this is a MB forum but I have to ask you techs how hard a job is changing the Valve Cover Gasket in a 95 Toyota 4Runner 4wd SR5 6cyl? I figure it can't be much different from engine to engine.
Thanks from Charlotte.

ps..Do you guys have a reputable place that I can get a aftermarket soft top for my 560sl? The stiching has dry rotted in my top.

Many thanks!

I think there was a recall on the 3.0L Toyota V6 engines for a bad head gasket. You could probably get it replaced for free. Not sure. I will look into it.

I do not see any recalls on this now, but I remember there was some type of recall due to a bad head gasket.

Hey Tony,
Thanks for checking into this for me. Let me know if you hear anything on this matter.
The leak appears only to be a valve cover gasket.
