Before you begin. You will want to read the sister thread Doing Another Turbo. There are some refinements and mods to improve oil flow with the stock turbo that we're not known to me at the time of this post.

Yep, it was there. So I was so excited to do something different. Thought I would be done in a few hours.





Its a little nasty. I can make the blade rub the dirt off the side wall by hand. It never touched on it's own.



This was my attempted to mark the orientation of the outer case to the inner. But after getting further in found it wasn't necessary. But better to be cautious when you don't know. Yes this is my first turbo rebuild.



After removing the big snap ring. I had to tap the inner unit on the side to loosen it from the case. A rubber mallet and being careful not to tilt it to much. Don't want the blades to hit the side of the housing and damage them. Take about nerve racking.



Removing the seal with a dental tool. A drimal and some Novocain, I bet I could do that too! Wait I got distracted. You can see the dirt It scratched from the side of the housing on the impeller blades when checking for play.



An 8mm nut and the other end a 12pt 12mm nut, remove counter clock wise. slide thw wheel off.



I returned the nut back on to the shaft until it was just proud oh the shaft end. Then lightly tap it until shaft comes out the back. Gentile is the word here. Do not want to do any damage to the shaft or blades. Starting to see considerable coking, looks like we got this one just in time. Before any serious damage occurred.



I see the first peace of the puzzle came out with the shaft. The brass bushing. I will locate all the parts that is in the kit and document with the camera as to location and orientation. That way I know how it goes back together.



Time to remove the other snap ring and the disk that it holds.



I used this to knock the disk out the other end. Had to be careful not to get it cocked sideways as it comes out.



This the backside of that disk. More puzzle peaces. going to have to clean this stuff to see what all is what.



another peace. Looking nastier as I go.



Notch goes face down or inside in the case.



This is how the parts stack up on the disk as the go in the housing.



Anyone interested in a slightly used turbo kit? LOL More tomorrow.



UptownSport
Lotsa stuff in there

Lots to clean. This will take time and a good soak. Oil passages must be clean and not blocked.






That was the easy part. Here comes where I spent the bulk of time. The shaft housing.
