Ronnbannedie just texted me a good thought, one that has me wishing I'd not sent a pointed (bier inspired?) email to said turboseller...

I did have a good oil drip tonight coming from the scavenge pump banjo fitting...

...maybe I've got a scavenge issue and it's not turbo seals?

things that make ya go hmmm (and wishing could retract emailz, fer now!?)

the turbo came out not dripping in oil, but with visible coke and somewhat wetness deep within the turbine - not on the blades, but within the housing

I know I had a thrust issue w/ the SC cams mating to the scavenge pump, and our Chris C sent me a shim to account for the difference. Mebbe I fubar'd that? Dunno how honestly, sorat plug 'n play there.

2:31a.m. thoughts? Oy...
