question about turbo install

i pulled the turbo today to clean it. i have the turbo install kit from ford. i know the two bigger o rings, yellow, are for the tube (i believe this tube carries waste oil back into the motor) i think the smaller o ring is for the oil line where it comes out of the motor and heads to the turbo. how come there is only a gasket for the oil line at the turbo and not where it comes out of the motor? do you have to replace this o ring (it's blue). i was wondering if i am missing a gasket in the kit or is no gasket used there? there is also three spacers, i assume these are for the three bolts to attach the turbo. i have a 04, and there were no spacers when i took it off so i assume i don't need them.......
sorry for such a long post but i don't want to botch it..

thanks!

Yes its your turbo drain tube and it allows the oil to re-enter your engine after it lubricates your turbo.

The "O" ring goes on the oil cooler side...

Hmm here is a for this one maybe one of the techs will elaborate but I think the spacers are for the '03-early '04 style pedestal...

Good luck and I you haven't already put some high temp anti-seize on those turbo bolts

turbo had some pitting, didn't look too bad, all the vanes and the cam moved freely, so maybe it will be cool for 50,000. it has 145,000 on it now and thats the first time i pulled it. was a beotch separating the housing from the turbo,,but it's done and it's running good. maybe it will last a week...
