what say you to this compressor wheel

Turbo



I am currently chasing a fuel leak around the hpop. And ran into this bit. Looks buggered up to me not certain if it is all that terrible though. So looking for some opinions thanks.

1995 f350 power stroke, automatic, crew cab, long box. Straight pipes, k&n intake.

How does that happen? I should just be replacing the compressor wheel and be back to top shape?

It's hard to tell from that pic but it looks like it's more than just dust. It looks like your bearing is going out and the wheel contacted the housing. Dusting happens from dust getting in the intake. It's common with K&N replacement filters and not all to uncommon with the stock intake. It's not the best sealing design, IIRC there was a recall on the screws that hold the top together. Try reaching in and moving the wheel side to side, dose it make contact?

On closer examination of the pic, you're right. Looks like shaft play.... If the housing isn't bad, you could rebuild it but you may be better off with a new turbo. No experience with this problem so someone else will have to chime in.

The wheel seems quite sturdy I have checked for thrust and slop and found it to be minimal.

When i purchased the truck i replaced the air filter because it was obviously trashed.

Yes upon second inspection of the turbo there is zero play in any direction.
What so ever. There is also no binding at all in rotation. It does how ever have a funny whistle, but I attribute this to the deformity in the vanes.

With no shaft play, I would say it sucked something up. I would pull the turbo and check everything really well then replace the wheel if nothing else is wrong.
