Re: 86 5000csqt NO BOOST

1. is gauge working?
2. is wastegate stuck?
3. is there a seal or gasket in the turbo body? (I've seen one of these get
brittle and leak on another type of car and it's existence was never even
mentioned in the factory service manual)
good luck
let us know what the problem is
