Re: Advice needed : The T in the Q has eaten ! =>Debris in accordeonhose, - Any BTDTs to comment on usual enginedamage ?
Yes, i firmly believe that something had made its way through the intake
tract and into the compressor, because the impeller is torn on the cold side
inlet, defenitely a sign of metal-metal impact - but it's also destroyed
around the impeller axle
clearly indicating that this K26 has been eating something unhealthy for my
Definitely sounds like it's worth checking the rest of the engine, allthough
compression isn't all that great allready. Esp. #5 is having asthma..
