Following the links above, it seems the ball bearing is a check valve to stop oil draining into the turbo on sut down - rather than restricting oil flow. Is that right?
I have no smoke on start up . the engine idles clean.
In which case my scavenge may be inadequate, or seals stuffed - correct?
I feel a turbo job coming on.
There is no detectable play in the turbo shaft - in either direction. So, the bearings may be OK, but the seal blown?
