If you look where the oil filter is you may have a bolt in the housing where the filter is screw onto.

If not then you will need to check a oil gallery which usually run along the bottom and going up to the top of the engine block. They will have bolts blocking these on the outside of the engine block.

If you have non there then look along the cylinder head for oil galleries which would run up to the cam gear. These will be bloccked off with bolts also.

Just remove some of the bolts in the engine block and the cylinder and see if oil leaks from them. They will be a supply line to your turbo can use.
The bolts wont be very big or very long usually they will be a size 3/8 - 7/16 bolt head or 10 - 12 mm.

Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

How do I replace a oil pan on a 1993 chevy c1500 2 wheel with a 5.7 liter engine?

Drain the oil. Loosen the engine mounts and jack up the engine. Put 2x4s under the mounts. Remove all the pan bolts and drop the oil pan. You will also need to disconnect the oil cooler lines at the oil filter housing to get to some of the pan bolts. There are also some engine support brackets you will need to remove.

What is the reason for oil entering in the inlet manifold of a CRDE engine

OIl from the pcv valve from the oil being retained in the rocker cover from the oil not being allowed to run back to the sump.. Blockage at the oil return line to the sump from the turbo allowing oil pressure to leak past the seals on the turbo shaft. Check for kinked hose or hose failing internally closing it off

How often should you clean oil out of the turbo charger on the gs? i was told it needed to be done.

I dont think you can "clean it" other that taking the inlet hose off and spraying some carb cleaner at the blades to clean them. It may be a good idea to take off the turbo inlet oil line and make sure its clean, oil starvation is what kiils turbos. . I would recommend Mobil1 oil to be used in the engine.

I have a diesel turbo and i want to put it on my ford

There is more to supercharging an engine than just putting a turbo charger on it. Fuel delivery will need to be adjusted. A different cam shaft, valves and maybe pistons.
You will probably need a larger radiator to get rid of the additional heat. The additional horse power and torque will destroy the stock transmission and differentials so you will need to replace with bigger.
Oil should be tapped off just after the oil filter. There is probably a plug somewhere close. Be careful not to starve the rest of the engine for oil. May have to put a oil pressure gage at the end of the oil gallery to monitor minimum oil pressure.
Are you sure you want to "turbo" this engine?

Diesel 6.0 running very bad and getting too hot

What you have described is a classic turbo air leak. Check the clamps & air lines from the turbo to the intake. If you do not find an air leak (you should be able to hear the air escaping) it will be a turbo problem. Unlike gasoline engines too much fuel in proportion to the air will cause the vehicle to run hot and also to smoke.
