Got my hands dirty today

Well i finally got the motivation to start doing some work on my truck now that I pulled it from the road for that reason. Its been leaking oil and from my research i knew it was one of four things and the first was HPOP, i checked and it wasn't that so i knew it had to be one of the ones from the turbo so i knew i had to pull it. Before i even went outside i ordered a set of new pedestal orings. Then today i went out to pull it and started right in on it. I followed a video that the mod Marty uploaded a while ago. Half way through i decided to take some pictures and share with the rest of the class






This clamp and the others like it were the biggest pain in my *** and probably took the longest out of everything.

Almost there

Finally got it out!




Think i found the cause of the leak




Well while its out It looks like the following is on my to do list:

ebv delete (to stop the oil leak)
foil delete (Why not)
New orings for the pedestal both top and bottom.

I wasn't sure if it was the o-rings or the ebpv until i got in there but afterwards it was quite obvious. The rod on it was loose on the stud which seemed odd plus all the oil was a dead give away. It was also acting up this winter and stayed closed for a long time. I am gonna tie the flange open and do the delete.

Tell ya right now... getting that up pipe clamp back on is gonna be a PIA.... I highly reccomend putting some thick grease on the o-rings to keep them in place, and then align the turbo on the up pipe and get the clamp on finger tight before connecting anything else. THEN pedestal bolts, then down pipe. I put some 1800* anti sieze inn the v-band clamps, too, so hopefully they wont be as hard to get off next time.

I don't doubt it and thanks for the tip, thankfully I am not driving it right now so there are no time constraints, otherwise id prob end up getting frustrated and breaking something.

I work in a machine shop so today I took the pedestal into work and on my lunch break i did this:


1/4 18 NPT worked perfect, no drilled or resizing. Then took a pipe plug and threaded it in there with liquid teflon and badda bing badda boom EBPV delete complete

Then when i got home I started putting it all back together, tied the flange open on the turbo and finally finished bolting it up about a half hour ago.

The electric plug that controls the EBV, it plugs into the pedestal. DO NOT plug it back in!
