I would sure appreciate some advice on this problem. I don't know if pedestal is cracked/warped or the seal is leaking on the compressor side. Turbine side looks dry high up. I replaced the orings on the pedestal and block. Oil is leaking in the valley between the Ebpv barrel and the block where the turbo is mounted. Can't see it but it looks high up near the base of the turbo I think. I did not put a dial indicator on the shaft but there does not appear to be in/out play. There is some radial shaft movement maybe 1/16 in. but nothing is binding when I spin it. No oil residual on turbine fins. No oil pooling on the compressor side. No leaks at idle only after it's been ridden. Leaks about 2 quarts every 300 miles and getting worse. Need the truck for the weekend to haul horses. Body is taking a punishment but it looks like it's coming off one more time. Please help; need travel to pick up parts tomorrow if needed.

The guy that I bought my rebuilt turbo from said he has seen a lots of center sections crack. I dont have more info but I know that there is an updated center section for turbos available that is stronger and wont crack. MIne has the onld style but is was CHEAP! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smokin.gif
