    Well I decided it was time to do something. Good or Bad I had a smaller oil feed line made up with #4 hose and the #6 fittings to mate up with everything else I had already plumbed in there. After a few short test runs, all looked fine, no oil leaks and it didn't smoke the turbo due to a lack of oil. I thought about asking on this forum if anyone needed something hauled over the pass, but, what if I had a break down or whatever was being hauled wasn't very heavy, so I didn't post anything but took off on a test run by myself with no other time constraints or expectations. Sunday morning I put tools, coveralls, boost boots, hoses, clamps, jacks etc in the truck, loaded 3 yards of sand into the dump trailer and set out on a test run. I stopped at the Federal way truck scale on I-5, about 6am, while they were closed, and weighed my truck & trailer. combined gross weight was 17,780lbs. up hywy 18 over Tiger mountain, up I-90 over snoqualime pass, the other climb out of Cle Elum, I think its called Rye Grass, turned south on hywy 82 for Yakima, with 3 more 2500ft elevation climbs, back to the west on hywy 410, over White pass to I-5 and back to Tacoma. I pushed her hard and didn't let her get under 60mph up each climb and 65-68mph everywhere else (that I could, depending on traffic), using the exhaust brake on the way back down those hills. The trip was about 360 miles. The only trouble I had was a tire blew out on the dump trailer. Reducing the volume of oil, to that one turbo, fixed its oil leak issue.

    I don’t leak often but my housing is definitely cracked. Sorry for slight derail 😀

    We can always bend up brackets in my press. I may even have some sparky aluminum we could use. Dave

    They had one. It was blown to pieces when the compressor went. That run away was with no boost. There was no intake left...

    i have drained with -10 for a long time, i also have built alot of trucks with twins and exhaust brakes and have not had any issue, also never seen a hx35 leak oil without a broke shaft. i believe there is a crack in the centre section of the hx35

    Had a good day shrimping yesterday. Best part was my wife backing the boat trailer down the ramp perfectly so I can just drive the boat on the trailer. Every fisherman’s dream is a wife who can back up a boat trailer.

    My trailer came with a newer version of the EZ Lift system. The bars ride on the bracket on the trailer tongue and slide into holes on the hitch. Our 2 week road trip last year we had no issues. Of course I was towing with my 2008 dually. Haven't had it out yet with the 2016 2500. That is next week's adventure. Doug
