Is there a step by step guide on installing a MTW billet wheel?

My old man is about to put the billet wheel on my 03 turbo(him and the truck are 200 miles away) and he was wondering what torque numbers to use, lock-tight? anti seize? Tips etc for the turbo.

So you didn't re-torque anything down? No anti-seize or anything?

This goes against anything I ever done rebuilding previous turbos.

OP, text me at 810-869-7782 if you need help but in all honesty it is pretty straight forward. No loctite, only use the Hi-Temp Anti-sieze on the vane area, and there really isn't a torque spec for these wheels. They are left hand thread so they will actually tighten themselves onto the shaft vice loosen as the turbo spins. I just tighten the wheel until I feel it (no kidding) stop tightening. It is weird I know but you can feel the wheel tightening slowly and then it will be like you hit a stop and that's it.

Well that is what I will tell him then. Him and I still can't get over the fact we don't have to balance the shaft/wheels changing these out. We messed with a lot of gas turbo applications, and this just seems way to simple.

While it's not required the OEM compressor and turbine are balanced as a pair.
