    Turbo Matching

    Note to turbo installers. Always prime the turbo with oil right before installation. Squirt it in the inlet and watch it come out the drain, then attach the lines.. Same goes for the oil supply line. A dry line and bearing housing takes a number of seconds to fill when the engine starts up and...

    Turbo Matching

    Have you run the truck with the replacement turbo? Did you fix what killed the last one? Could have been hit by a foreign object left in the manifold by a mechanic, or an engine part. Melted blades can look similar unless you know what you are looking at. Radial play can be felt. It's less when...

    Turbo Matching

    That turbo PN is a BorgWarner and designed for LD-465 but there could have been other turbos specified over the years. It plus the CHRA (cartridge) part numbers are still in their system. I haven't asked if they have any stock at BW. If that is the turbo you want replaced I could check. Boost...

    BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG RALLY - Atlantic, IA

    Great background, thanks. But what about Omaha? There is some interesting military history there and maybe some sites for tours. Or other cities bigger than where you are. These conventions need to go to all parts of the country and even though your area is not too far from past convention...

    BA-DA BA-DA BING BANG RALLY - Atlantic, IA

    Odd ending, seems like a post about the virus and government cancelling the event is not there. GUNNUT you have the organizational skills and energy to help lead a MVPA convention. I don't know how many volunteers there are in your area but most jobs will be event week so possibly volunteers...

    Turbo Matching

    Yes look for a leak between turbo compressor and engine intake. Unfortunately you might not hear or feel it when idling or blipping throttle because boost develops under load. A boost gauge will tell the tale when driving it. I don't know if there is a charge-air cooler (intercooler) on these...

    Largest Annual MV Gathering & Swap Meet in the West, Camp Plymouth April 14-19, 2020

    Wow, first time I was called honorable. Thanks! But does that mean I can't buy an item at Camp Plymouth for $10 and put it on my table for $20? Lostforwords, if you don't mind letting people know you are looking for one, put "wanted" posts in the appropriate SS forum and on G503.com. Say you...
