HI,i discovered the leak when i heard a different exhaust tone. So i started checking the exhaust to see if one of the clamps came loose but it was all good. I then noticed a black residue coming out the tail pipe and i checked and it smelled like oil. so i checked the oil level and it was low. i then removed the exhaust manifold and checked the exhaust ports for any signs of oil leaking. They were dry that then led me to check the turbo which was coated in oil on the inside on the exhaust side. So thats how i found it.
Well big turbos are component balanced meaning each part is balanced so when you put the rotating assembly together in theory everything should be balanced no matter how it goes together. With our turbos, just getting the wheel slightly off will have huge effects on balance.Question: with zero'd balance on the compressor wheel- I think-wouldn't making sure the nut goes back on to the shaft the same place be good? I ask as guys with big diesel turbos swap comp wheels without going in for a re-balance all the time, do they know something we don't?
You know I see you this way on the forums all the time. Maybe you should be nicer. I'm not being smug or assertive. Simply passing on knowledge.Going to provide any info, or simply smugly assert the other poster is wrong?
