we don't have wast gates.SD have them,obs tucks just have a exhuast back pressure valve.it is to help with warm up.i have ran with out one for 4 years and the wife for 1 year with out any problem in winter.i plug them in anyway when it gets down in the teens
gut the valve and put a freeze plug in the hole.it blocks like 24% of the exhaust when open.if you don't want it for a engine brake
the rod ,
oneway is to pull the rod out of the pedestal and put a pipe plug in the rod hole.or just cut the hole barrel that the rod is in on the pedestal and have it welded.i did this to the wife and man does it make life a lot easyer when pulling the turbo.cost me about $15 to have it done.(their is some pics in the wife truck just click on the sleeper below.)
or you can just put some JB weld around the rod.some guys have done that with luck and you might be able to do it with the turbo on the truck.depending on how big you arm is.
don't forget to unplug the electic to the rod its the 2 wire plug at front driver side of the turbo kinda in the valley.just unplug it.
if you gutting it you can pull the pins and wires out of the plug on the turbo side and then plug it back in and put tape around it.
good luck,if you do pull the turbo be a good time for new do-nuts and new turbo o-rings
i hope that all make some kind of sence
