    You say Caustic removed this substance, did the biproduct of this cleansing process become milky white or sudsy? I'd say this is solid oil on the filter and you have created soap by adding caustic....

    That sort of plastic probably isn't the best to use with koh and methonol. In fact glass is a better vessel all together.

    Re: 80 series turbo problem

    Was the turbo new or used.

    Was an EGT guage fitted.

    Oil changes at 5000 are good.

    Check you oil lines to the turbo....

    Re: KOH in Brisbane

    Is it KOH or NaOH. If its KOH what is the other 10%?
