Hi there,

I believe that these alternators have a vacuum pump attached to the back of them, any way if the engine is burning oil, this will not be the cause, what grade of oil are you using, it should be specific deisel turbo not syn oil, I use in my work shop Shell Rimular X with never a problem on turbo engines, what are you using?
