New chapter: She runs! The door on the air flow meter/control was stuck closed. After I cleaned out the turbo and reassembled (after cleaning the air box and the air meter door/housing) she fired right up.

Idled perfect for a few minutes but as she warmed she died again (#^%*$. I pressed the adjusting key a bit to insure the door was not stuck and she stumbled a bit but required my holding the throttle all the way down before she fired again. After that she maintained a idle and got up to temp so I could check the oil level. Needed a quart which is what I had drained back.

Only problem now is it has trouble starting again after it gets warm/hot?

You can hear the air flow door sqealing a bit when cold trying to restart.

What causes the air meter door to stick? Solution to the warm starting issue?

Still not sure how the oil got in the turbo before? Could the stuck air meter door pull oil into the turbo?
