Hey MKEDF, How does the oil drain from your turbo? Does it have it's own sump w/ a scavenge pump running off the camshaft? If so you may have trouble there. I don't think the clamp would let it leak oil, if it were running fine and just started smoking like hell. If the clamp was the culprit you would probably hear some terrible noises and most likely a loss of boost as well. However, if you have scavenge or drain trouble, it would probably run ok but smoke like crazy. Of course it could always be too much oil, (we've probably all done it once) or just a bad turbo. Any history on the puffer? Just a thought, hope it helps. Judging by your profile I'm guessing this is your '75 S?
