My turbo oil return is leaking, I replaced it, it's still leaking.
I went to the local yard and got another turbo and I'm rebuilding it, it's on my bench now. I want a more permanent solution to the oil return, that provides a connection at the bottom without a flexible seal.
My current plan is to drain the pan, clean the hole thoroughly, and JB Weld (ugh, I know, but anyway) a fitting into the hole. But there has to be a better way, right? If the engine were out of the vehicle I could maybe thread a hole in there, but that's not happening right now.
Does anyone have a better idea? I realize the penalty for failure if I get this wrong. But I cannot live with this big ugly oil leak. I think there's a gouge in there at the sealing surface.
