Black soot at Exhaust brake and Turbo

Is this black soot a problem at exhaust brake and turbo, maybe a leak or gasket broken? See pics, there is a noisey engine compartment.

The 7.3 doesn't have an exhaust brake. Your picture shows the center section and compressor housing with probably an oil leak. I would rebuild it with new bearings and seals and upgrade to a Wicked Wheel 2.

Exhuast brake

The truck has some kind of exhaust brake on it because it has a switch inside cab that when I turn it on there is an exhaust brake that comes on and slows truck down. The PO said he had a Garrett exhaust brake installed on truck and I know that this did not come on truck from factory. Where would the exhasust brake be installed on truck, it is supossed to be a turbo mount type?

Maybe this is the type of brake the PO owner installed

Maybe this is the type of exhaust brake the PO installed, he told me it was a turbo mount unit made by Garrett but since I am very new to diesels and PS which I bought he may have misled me. I looked into types and can take pics of whatever is needed for help so I can find out exactly what I do have. I do have some kind of EB and it is turned on by a toggle switch on dash when I turn it on it does take aprox 1-2 seconds to engage exhaust braking system. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I just looked it up and the exhaust break uses the stock ebpv and is operated by the aftermarket controller. So you have a fully stock turbo that appears to have an exhaust leak on the exhaust housing.

I found this kit from Garrett

I found this kit from Garrett do you believe this will do the job the leak you believe is from the turbo not the compressor? Why do the Turbos always get rusty and the compressor no rust, I understand they are made out of diff metals but why aren't the Ford Turbos made from a metal that does not turn into a brown rusted piece of metal looks horrible and I can not believe it is a good thing. The Garrett compressor is I would assume alumnimnun and Turbo is steel, I appreciate your help,

Here is repair kit:

Ford PowerStroke 94-97 7.3L → 1994-97 7.3L Ford Powerstroke Replacement Turbos & Accessories → Garrett Turbo Rebuild Kit 94-97 7.3L Ford Powerstroke

Thanks

What you are calling the "turbo" is the turbine or exhaust housing and is made out of cast iron and is exposed to a lot of heat from the exhaust gases, so that is part of why it rusts quickly. The compressor side is made out of aluminum. The rust is normal and happens to all turbos, unless the cast iron is ceramic coated or painted.

I would use a 360 degree bearing kit like Barder Turbo sells. ONLINE STORE - Barder Turbo Service

INSTALL- 360 degree bearing kit like Barder Turbo sells

Rusty,
How difficult is it to install these kits and is this the only thing you recommend? I really appreciate your help and info. Also am I in any danger of this causing damage or can it wait till I fix the clutch issues I am having at this time?

I am not an expert, but leaks do not typically fix themselves. I would install the rebuild kit and WW2. It's very simple to rebuild the turbo ONCE you get it out. Turbo removal can be pretty tough on these trucks. Use the search function or Google and there are tons of write ups with pictures.

Good luck!

Rusty
