A wise man once told me that while piston engines might not be as reliable as turbines, the good thing is that they warn you when something is wrong before it goes badly wrong.

The photo is of the turbo oil pressure feed line.  This time it wasn't me - it was my mechanic who is normally meticulous.  The line was routed so that it touched the exhaust.  While there was no oil leak there must have been some kind of effect.

So the line now replaced, oil and filter changed etc and the oil pressure is steady from sea level through to 5000.

Bud was right - it did have something to do with the turbo
