Default rebuilt turbo now it doesnt spin

Ok I followed Busted pt's turbo rebuild step by step. the turbo spun freely when before I put it in the outer houosing..(i had to tap it with a hammer to get it to seat good to get that big a$$ snap ring to seat. I didnt tap the shaft just the backing part where it seats in. I didnt check to see if it still spun once it was mounted to the turbofold like a dumbass. Then I put it all back together and it wont spin unless I use my finger with some force. I assume I have to pull it and start over again I assume. Im realigned everything like it was before the teardown.

Did you put the spacer back in between the turbofold and the turbo unit?Can you get a pic from the air cleaner side of the unit to see if the impeller is up against the side of the housing.

yep the spacer is there and theres no shaft play. im guessing i just overtightened the impeller bolts. should that center section be that tight in the outer side?im so freaking irritated im tempted to buy another used turbo just so i can drive the car and rebuild one later to resell it and recoup my money

You said it turned freely before you put it in the housing. There is a line up pin in there also. That's lined up with the cartridge and the aluminium housing? Not sure if you could actually could get the snap ring in if you didn't anyway. The only resistance should be the lube. I have to go out for a bit Will check on you later.

A rebuilt Turbo charger assembled in the housing should perform like the videos.


Core without housing.



Complete Turbo installed in housing.

i skipped that step about checking to see if it spins. i was so excited to finally have it rebuilt and have no shaft play that i forgot to check that. the intake is off and i just have to unhook oil feed and coolant feed and the turbo is free.be back in a few
