Turbo Rebuild

Just rebuilt my 03 turbo and all works great until I torque my wheel on. I follow riff raffs directions and torque it to 10 ft lbs but the shaft gets very tight and won't turn. What is the problem.

do you not have the rear seal fully seated?

You don't have the shaft all the way home in the turbine side, sometimes the ring seal catches, or you don't have the compressor section on the CHRA correctly. If it is all level or very slightly protruding into the compressor section at the backing plate, you will have no binding.

It does pull out a lot easier than it did when I rebuilt it. I didn't hit it with a hammer but it seems seated. I will check it again to see. Thanks

You shouldn't need to hit it hard, just a light tap.....it will "snap" and "click" into place once the seal is sitting in it's seat

If I remember correctly you have a clamp style 03 turbo. This may actually take a different bearing kit than the later turbos. Do all your old components look the same as your new ones?

I got it. It just wasn't seating properly. First rebuild and it was definitely a learning experience. A huge thank you to Peixinho for getting me a new back plate and housing as well as walking me through some difficult steps. You are the kind of person this forum needs. Also thank you Sinner6.0L for your help as well. I hope I can return the favor one day.

Turbo Rebuild

The front housing has the holes for bolts just like normal. The housing is held on by straps similar to the picture below. The backing plate does not have threads in it to accept any bolts. Bolts go through the front and into these which gives you the clamp style. Turbo Rebuild-imageuploadedbyag-free1393508840.640847.jpg
Hope this helps.
