I had a pedestal oil leak so i pulled the turbo and rebuilt it while i had it out. I changed the pedestal o rings and reinstalled everything. Turck started up for about 1 min then all the sudden it started stalling out made a gurgling sound and stalled out now theres is a massive pool of oil under thr truck. Lools like from the passanger side. Where do you guys think i went wrong?

Super common to pinch the pedestal o ring and sounds like that’s what happened.

I'd guess the oil connection? I don't know anything so don't take my word but wouldn't that be the most logical.

Don't listen to me dude. Wait for someone who knows more. If it doesn't have a keyboard and mouse I'm pretty worthless

Sometimes the o ring moves and get cut/pinched when you tighten it down. Actually really common. Happened a few times in Rigs I helped with repairs/maintenance. Did you take any else apart when you did the turbo? I would also look at the hpop ends and lines. It could all be a coincidence that one of the o rings failed at the same time too etc.

That must have been the problem. Put everything back together again and no oil leak. Thanks guys! The trucks running like a beast now.
