Well perhaps oil level too high and splashed. I had changed the oil and since there is a large RSR cooler in the front it may have been a factor. I thought she had gotten warm enough but maybe not.

Can the turbo prop be tight and smooth in movement and still have bad seals?

2- The leak may have been a positive as I could not figure out why she was not firing up. One, the oil was dripping from the large turbo hose (side facing the prop). That being said the hose was loose so perhaps air getting in. Second, one of the leads to the temp switch was off and I could not see it before as the hose blocked my view.

I had read that if one of the leads were off it would not crank?

Best solution re oil in the turbo? Do I have to take it off? If it splashed in should there not be be oil in the breather?
