Tips of getting the turbo out

Hi just got my first diesel and is has an exhaust leak as well as bad seal on under the turbo. I have gotten my up pipes loose at the exhaust manifolds and the top bolts loose connecting the turbo to the y plates. Any advice from someone that has done it before on what to use on the bottom bolts to reach them. It's a 13mm I think. Thanks

If you have cash a snap-on dubble wobble ex with a shallow socket. If not any swivel racheting wrench. Mine WERE a 15 till i replaced the hardware. I know big pain in the a$$. If nethier of that works for you try just taking off the up-pies and taking the turbo off with the Y pipe still on. 4 10mm bolts hold the pedastl on the engine, also 2 on the bottom of the turbo but can't get to them with out taking the turbo and pedastl off as one. Their is a write up about it in the TECH section on the forum home page of this site. When you replace the up pipe gaskets use larger ones for a small block chevy. They compress and seat better. Also replace BOTH sets of o-ring for the turbo, the ones in between the turbo and ped and the ones that are on the block.

Thanks for the help I ran around to get tools today and got the Y pipe loose. Is there a bolt on the turbo pedestal that has to come off to get the turbo to release or should it be free with those bolts off? I see a bolt behind the turbo on the pedestal and can't tell. Thanks again for the help

Their is 4 bolts holding the pedestal to the block two up front and one behind the exhaust housing and one behind the compressor side. The one on the compressor side in the back you'll have the EBPV ( exhaust back pressure Valve) housing which looks like a cylinder facing to each fender it'll have a rod coming outta it on one side. Look behind that ( towards the fire wall) and you'll see a small indent in in to get a 1/4" socket and swivel on the 10mm head. Take the EBPV housing off and the whole unit will come off then flip it over and two 10mm head bolts will seperate the turbo from the ped. I recomend also to get rid of the EBPV to prevent future problems. PM me if you need more help. But if i dont respond in time their is a post in the TECH section on how to do it.
