I have a 97 F-Superduty with 7.3 DI Stock, had leaks on oil rail end plugs on driver side head, bought orings and fixed. Then sprung a leak under the turbo on the pedestal, bought another oring kit, then figured while i had the turbo off, i would rebuild it. Also bought non-acuator pedestal and blank waste gate valve to get rid of any other problems. Since then, i have installed the turbo/pedestal on the motor 4 times with an oil leak between the pedestal/ turbo every time.The last time i even used the old pedestal to make sure something wasn't wrong with the new one. The oil leak isn't small either, i can track myself down the road! The bolts under the pedestal won't tighten to 35 ft lb without breaking, i have bought new bolts and still have trouble with 1 breaking. It's not bottoming out! I need help with this if anyone else has had this problem. Thanks
