EBPV Pedestal Leak FIX!!!

Ok so after tearing my turbo of to rebuild the EBPV I figured out that all you need to do is simply adjust the rod that activates the EBPV. You might even be able to do it in the truck. I couldn't understand why it was leaking tell after I was installing the rebuild kit I had purchased. My seals were as good or better than the rebuild kit I just purchased. Well its simple over time the EBPV actuator spring relaxes and will need to be tightened up. I might be rejoicing early, but I'm pretty sure its the cure. Sorry if somebody already discussed this, but I couldn't find anybody that wasn't just deleting it.

I still have to put the Turbo back on and test it, but it just has to be the cure.

Anything to report on this?

If there is a possibility that it just needs adjustment sometimes, I'd sure like to know how this could be done.

Although my EBPV is still working OK on my 96, I do use it as an exhaust brake too so would be interested in knowing how to service it in the future.
