Turbo pedestal issue..

Is there a seal around the EBV rod in the turbo pedestal that can go bad? Mine appears to be leaking from that area. I put new o-rings on both sides(top and bottom)of the turbo pedestal when I did this engine install. It currently has about 1000 miles on it and has developed a nasty leak while driving it, doesn't leak hardly anything while idling, but it appears to be coming from that hole that the EBV rod goes into the pedestal at..

dont hold me to this...but i think they sell kits to rebuild that at itpdiesel..they are kinda pricey...which is why i just bought a new pedistal without that rod and did away with the ebpv....im told its a common problem.

yes, they are prone to leaking from the actuator rod. Is your EBPV still plugged up?

My EBPV still functions. We get pretty damn cold up here in the winter and kind of wanted to keep it, but if its going to become a liability for leaks I may have to do away with it I guess..

mine never worked on mine..when i took my pedistal off i found out why-someone cut the brass rod for the valve so it could never close you shouldnt have any issues without the ebpv

Thats what I'm thinking also. Looking at ITP's non-EBV pedestal and the bigger turbo outlet with no EBV in it..

Stuff is on the way.. Now hopefully the clamp for the turbo to y-pipe isn't too big of ***** to get off again.

i was gonna say the rebuild kits i looked at when i replaced my turbo pedestal said they wouldnt fix the oil leak comming from around the rod so i just replaced the whole thing, i needed to get my truck back on the road ASAP so i had to use a stock ford piece hopefully i can delete it one day

I hear ya.. I called our local diesel shop and they wanted as much for a stock replacement EBV style pedestal as I would end paying for the non-EBV pedestal and the new non EBV style bigger opening for the turbo outlet. Made my choice somewhat easier, I'll just let it warm up alittle longer in the winter before I hit the road..
