    confused Oil in the vac lines

    when I had turbo changed there was oil in the vac lines enough to pour out and it was getting squeezed out when under boost

    I put it down to the turbo blowing oil

    Anyway I can smell oil took the vac line off to right of the slam panel and i can see oil there so its worse than before

    any ideas where this oil is coming from ?

    its a 150 sri

    Vacuum pump runs off the camshaft on the gearbox side of the engine. Likely there's a seal gone.
