Hi , thanks for the response.
O.K. the engine runs just the same with, or without the actuator bolted to the turbo.
Are you famillier with the FORD/MAZDA engine layout--- do you have a workshop manual to look at ???
The new actuator that I fitted, is not working, pressure is going up the pipe to the actuator. If I remove the actuator control pipe from the outlet to inlet pipe there is definatly pressure in the pipe. It is possible to opperate the actuator manually, in situation so it is NOT ceased.
There is no spring that I am aware of on the wastegate, Should there be ???
It is impossible to drive the car & see what is going on in the engine.
Sorry but I do not have a boost gauge.
I cant help thinking that there is somthing that is so simple, I have missed it.
I have been told to buy a new (or 2nd hand) turbo unit. but this is an expensive option, I can buy half a new car for the price.AND it does NOT appear that the turbo is broken.
Thanks for your time, I await your reply.
Happy Days !!!!!
