Your comment regarding the diaphagm blowing concerns me.  My '83 TQC's
wastegate diaphragm has cracks (holes) in it.  I haven't found a replacement
yet as I'm still getting conflicting information about whether the TQC
diaphagms are the same as the ones from the 5kt.  Should I be overly
concerned?  Your statement coupled with the second failure of the
differential lock switch in the dash (pressure line from the turbo boost
gauge pressurizes this system) makes me think I'm getting too much pressure.
