    Awesome! I’m glad you solved it.

    I have a car show that I signed up for in Longview that weekend. I’m going to pass this year so I know it will be HUGE and I will miss everyone.☹️

    Ultimate Callout Challenge

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

    compounds and an exhaust brake??

    It’s tricky for sure. Probably what I would do it degrease the area the best I could then take it for a spin and set the exhaust brake at high rpms. Try to recreate the trailer behind the truck the best you can. See if you can see where the oil is coming from. Maybe the drain is leaking near the center section. If it were coming from the ring seal in the exhaust side the only way you would know is blue smoke out the exhaust. It has to be an external leak in the center section. Maybe a crack that was missed? putting you boost gauge on the valve cover isn’t a bad idea at all. you could run a 24v type draft tube on the front of the engine along with you current vent if needed. Just add a valve cover with the oil fill cap.

    Do your turbo oil drains go in above or below the oil sump level? I’m betting above, at least for the HX35. Also what do you have for crankcase ventilation? I’m betting you have a lot of crankcase gasses when the brake is being used that is causing the oil to back up in the HX35.

    In Search Of a 22cm BHT3B Turbine Housing

    Depends on cost but I would be willing to give it a shot. My back pressure is a little under 1:1 currently. Be interesting to see what an 18cm housing would do.

    In Search Of a 22cm BHT3B Turbine Housing

    Seems to me that once they ask for an Engine Serial number it appears to be a dead end at that point. In reality I understand. If some one asks for a part for our enignes the first thing we ask for is an engine serial number.

    In Search Of a 22cm BHT3B Turbine Housing

    I have no idea what an HT3B came in (that isn't entirely true) let alone what turbo configuration had a 22cm housing. Getting an HT3B is easy. Knowing if it has a 22cm housing has proven to be a challenge. All the listings I have seen don't tell you what size housing is on the turbo.

    Well, no luck on this. The Guy I was emailing with, hasn’t responded. Kind of bummed out. There has to be a way to get one. I’m going to check EBay again. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. DJ Kota bought the wheels I got from Dave for the Jetta. I need to get them as far North as possible. Let me know if anyone is able to help me out.

    Backup camera display mounting options for early Gen2

    I converted my 04 to double din. It doesn’t help much for how to do it on a 2nd Gen but it can be done. Just takes a guy that isn’t afraid to cut the dash. LOL! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Backup camera display mounting options for early Gen2

    I have installed several back up cameras over the years in many trucks. There are tons of options. I’ve done the screen mounted on the sun visor. It was wireless. I hated it. I had a screen that clamped on over my rear view mirror for years. I still have it somewhere. Your welcome to call t if you want it. I finally got tired of it because it didn’t make a very good rear view mirror but it work great for a camera monitor. I finally installed a double din stereo in my truck, mostly because I wanted navigation but it works great for the back up camera. I have also installed a couple of single din stereos with flip out screens. Here is one I just did on a Ford. I have installed the same stereo in a 2nd Gen Dodge also. I think it is the best option. I always run wired cameras after my first experience with wireless cameras. However, I am going to try to add a second wireless camera to my slide in camper so I have a camera on the back of the camper without having to connect wires. I have all the hardware to do it. Just been really busy and haven’t gotten to it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    In Search Of a 22cm BHT3B Turbine Housing

    Well.... the Modern Shop got back to me. Of course the housing is on back order but it does appear to be the part I want. They are trying to see what they can do to locate one. They asked me for my engine serial number so I had to explain to the Guy that my serial number wasn't going to get him very far. LOL! They have been very nice and extremely helpful, sending drawings and pictures. I guess we will see what else they come up with but I suspect it will be a dead end.

    I have sent them a message to see if I can verify if it is the right part or not. We will see what they says.

    I would also look into bent control arms to reduce rubbing. That is what we put on Chief Jack's truck to stop the tire rub entirely and to center the tire back in the wheel well on the front end with the leveling kit.

    I found one place that has one by the part number and description, but the picture was of something else so I am a bit skeptical it is the right part.
