English term or phrase:down the shaft
The cavity between the compressor and turbine from which oil is scavenged, is vented "down-the-shaft." This vent air enters the turbine coupling shaft through drilled holes in the front and rear. Air passes through the turbine rotor and exits through oil seal to exhaust gases.
