ATS housing a WW install went bad. Need advice.

Attempted to install ats housing and ww. Got the stock housing and ww off no problem. Went to put ww on with air gun and think I over tighten it. The stock wheel spun free. The new ww went on good, but now it spins alittle then seems to get hung and stop. Not sure if the shaft is bent.

It seems like its just catching somewhere on the exhaust end of the turbo. That's were I can hear it. I then put the ats housing on. After tightening the bolts on the housing the y pipe didn't really line up to the opening on the ats housing and the wheel hit the housing and wouldn't spin at all. Everthing look like it line up. The bolts went in no problem.

I then removed the ats housing and was able to spin the wheel, but not like the stock wheel spun. It stop was catching on something near the exhaust end. Long story short, I re-installed the stock wheel, which hung up as well leading me to think the shaft might be bent. I reinstalled the stock housing and the wheel was able to spin without hitting the housing. I started the truck. No weird noises, no loss of boost psi. Seems to run like it did before I started this mess.

What should I do now? Never work on a truck again? Have a professional look at it and install it to make sure everything is good?

I can't figure out what I did wrong.

Does anyone know why the ats housing wouldn't line up with the y pipe?

Or why the wicked wheel wouldn't spin after I tightened the bolt on the ats housing?

I tried to install with the turbo in the truck. Should I attempt the install again and remove the turbo from the truck then install the parts?

i would remove the turbo from the truck, disassemble it on the work bench, and go ahead and thoroughly inspect EVERYTHING. the turbo should shin freely... very freely... if it it "hanging up" or doesnt feel right... DONT risk it bro.

hell, go ahead and order a rebuild kit from one of the site sponsors on here, it will be worth your while to know it is all done right.

it only seemed to catch or hang up on the back end near the exhaust. the compressor wheel spun fine and when i put everything back together it started and ran great. same boost psi as before, no weird noises.

i'm thinking about removing the intake and tubes going to the compressor housing and seeing if i can spin the wheel. if it feel like its not getting hung up like before i might try the job again.
