Wicked wheel was alittle too wicked :(

Well about 4 weeks ago I got my ww2 in and installed it, did it the right way and took the turbo out and split it instead of using an impact, ran great after I got it all back together, absolutely loved it. Well last Friday the whole turbo went boom took it to the shop and I could move the shaft up down and all over the place and when I had put it all back together after the install there was no shaft play.. What could have caused this? I have a 38r now getting put on this week

Yea but,,, there's supposed to be play "up down and all over the place"...

IF, when you put it together it had No Play, you did something wrong

I have no idea how, or why, but without play there is No Room for the lubricating oil it needs. Did the wheel have so much play it dragged on the housing? If not, that sounds perfectly normal to me.

Getting nervous about doing my wheel now! What could have gone wrong, seems straight forward

sounds similar to what i had done, but with a gen 1 w.w. I THOUGHT the wheel was threaded all the way. A little time later, BOOM, turbo went. Broke the shaft, sent chunks into the IC..you get the picture. Sit'n there, scratch'n my head, as to why this happened.

Well, it wasnt until i rebuilt the turbo, that i noticed something. I noticed on the turbo i rebuilt, that the wheel "sat" 1/8-3/16 down, past the shaft, meaning, the shaft protruding that much out the center of the wheel. I go and look at the w.w. still on the broken shaft and yup, that wheel sitting flush.

What i think/know happened, is when i installed it WITH an impact, it just did not "suck" the bushing clamp rings into their respective spots, thus, leaving enough gap to eventually cause havoc.

Not saying this is your case, but it sure the heck was mine...

You checked torque when you installed? I've seen a lot of turbos blow from over torqueing wheels.

A little bit of side to side play is okay/normal. What you do not want is any in and out play. That indicates a problem.

As stated above, if you tighten it up with an impact or torque it too much, you could have damaged the shaft which would eventually lead to complete failure.

Could have been a balancing issue. People really should have them rebalanced after a new wheel is installed.
