I am new to the 80. 1HDT and the small metal tube on the bottom side of the turbo seems to be leaking.

Is this indicative of major problems inside the turbo or just a leaking seal or line?i

Across the pond, and upside down
The small metal oil feed tube are known to crack at the flange.
Either source a new replacement, or remove it, clean it up and TIG weld it.

They can fail catastrophically.
Mine cracked, and dumped a shìt load of oil fast.

Partsouq showing no stock currently.

This is the part for a '98 HDJ80.

The design was altered to alleviate the problem with cracking (the extra plate between the thin feed line, and oil return was added)
