Leaking EBV

My ebv accuator is leaking, I was wondering if Ford or anybody else made o-ring kits for this problem. Im tired of chasing this darn oil leak for the past 2 months.

Well the valve won't leak oil, however the pedistal will.

Verify that's what's leaking and let me know.

I know this video title states gutting the EBPV but it's really gutting the pedistal. I have another video that got corrupted that was about gutting the EBPV and was not able to fix it.

Gutting the Turbo Pedistal

Well, I just put new o-rings top and bottom yesterday, took it out today for a 30 min or so drive, and the leak is still there, its collecting on the linkage to the EBV itself. I went to my ford dealer and got an exploded view, it seems like there are 4 o-rings on it. I could be wrong. If its not the EBV accuator what could it be ? I meant in the title and first thread to put accuator not just the valve, obviously the valve itself shouldnt be leaking oil, if it was i would have bigger problems.

Yes, it can leak out of the pedistal at the actuator arm.

Is there oil in the valley? If so, check your HPOP O rings.

Yes, there is oil in valley, one of my HPOP fittings is starting to leak, I've got the kit at home just havent had time to put it on.

I have thought about it, but Ive got my ebv hooked to a toggle switch to use it as a exhaust brake. I kinda like the fact that its a cheap way to have an exhaust brake. But at the same time if its gonna cost me 160 bucks just to get new o-rings. I was just wondering if anybody has had this problem and had an idea of part #'s or dimensions. I plan on taking it apart tonight after work, hopefully being able to match the o-rings up at a parts store.
