Are these Radiators and turbos the same?

I have a '94.5 F350, one of the early powerstrokes. The rad is completely split between the core and the bottom tank. I called a wrecker and they said that the rads are all the same right from '83 up to '95. Mine has the rad cap on the top of it, and it measures 31" x 23 5/8. Any help would be much appreciated.

The turbo is also leaking oil out the exhaust and Im told that its toast. Is the turbo on all OBS PSD's the same? Would a turbo from a '97 fit on my 94.5?

I believe the radiator is the same as long as it comes from a diesel truck just be careful if its from a 95 that is the year they switched the style of them. As far ad turbos go any 94.5-97 will work

The rads are different, the 94.5's use an IDI radiator which has a cap on top and the hose routing is different. The turbo is the same as long as its from a 94.5 PSD and not a turbo IDI.

I believe the rad support is different if it has a/c on those trucks, the rad should be the same between a/c and non ac trucks

The original radiators on 5-speed trucks did not have a tranny fluid cooler in them. With most aftermarket radiators, they don't make different ones for manual vs. auto; they all have the tranny cooler and you simply don't hook it up when you install it in a 5-speed truck.

The early powerstokes(94/95) used the same radiator as the 92,93,94 IDI trucks(copper core and tanks). The 91 and older are DIFFERENT

Somewhere in 95 they changed to plastic tanks

As for the turbo, yes all OBS(94-97) powerstrokes use the same Garrett 1.15 turbo

I just had a guy call me, he has a '95 7.3 that spun a bearing so he is parting it out. He said to come by n have a look at the turbo n make him an offer. He knows what a new one costs and rebuild kit is worth. What would be a descent price on a used turbo? What do I need to check on it besides the shaft play?

Mine is fried, oil blowing out the exhaust side, and Im wondering if it could be something to do with the pedestal? I am wanting to grab both. What else should I maybe grab off this engine since he is parting it all out?
