RE: Oil leak on turbo lines...
Jeez, what did you spend $400 on? Reconditioning a single hose?!
I think a flexible hose could be used as a return line. Supply line is
bent at almost 180 degree though, so I don't think any flexible hose
allows safe operation being bent at such angle. Besides, I don't know
who manufactures the fittings used on turbocharger.
87 Audi 5000CS turbo (mine)
88 Renault Medallion wagon (mom's)
91 mountain bike (just in case both cars broke at the same time :-)
