Finally :) :) :)

It sure is hard to believe it has been a year since my 7006 imploded.

Firstly I would like to thank all who took the time to read and post so much great information that helped me get this turbo issue sorted.

Today feels like a real win. I installed the turbo after its fourth rebuild and for the first time in a year my baby has not been bellowing smoke, enough that left the neibours concerned we were experiencing a wild fire.

Only down side is there appears to be a few oil leaks that were not present a year ago.
But I can say I love the oil leaks, SHE IS RUNNING?

Thank you again fellow Pelicans.

good to hear.

I think sitting is the downfall to the 930, as far as oil leaks go.

A year? Four rebuilds?

Could have been solved in weeks with a call to Durabilt or Evergreen... what am I missing?

Either way congrats on getting the car back on the road.

So was there ever any real conclusion to what was causing the failures after the rebuilds? My money was on cheap Chinese rebuild parts that were out of tolerance.

Regardless, congrats and go drive it and enjoy the boost!

The first and second rebuild made no difference. Oil was flowing from both compressor and turbine sides.
The third rebuild was an improvement with the turbine side staying dry, however oil was still flowing through the compressor side.
This time during dismantlement the tolerances where carefully recorded. The result was the end gap of the turbine seals/rings where 3thou (.003") and the end gap of the compressor seals/rings where more than 4 times that (.014").
I have not been able to speak with them as yet, however I assume the compressor seal/rings have been changed to meet the manufactured tolerances of 3-6thou end gap.

Again thanks pelicans for the support.

The oil leaks are mainly from hoses/lines, like oil coolers etc.

Turns out not so awesome ............sheeet.

Fired her up to finally go for a drive and after cleaning the engine down and thinking the smoke was from the residual degreaser and oil, to be sure I pulled the intercooler only to see a puddle of oil in the bottom of the compressor.

Have you done a compression test?

Compression was not to bad across cylinders.
Not sure how poor compression would lead to oil present in the compression housing of the turbo.

When your car stops leaking oil, you know it's out.

Have heard this for years and years.

My turbo with 80k miles is as dry or dryer than any other car I have. More so, as it doesn't have AC and the others do :-)

Took me several weekends and a few sets of replacement gaskets and 0 rings, some new hardware, new oil lines here and there, but its dry as a bone.

Pressure washed it off with Coleman fuel (naptha) and its stayed clean as a whistle for over a year so far.
