Turbo rebuild

So I'm new to all of this, I have a 2000 f-450 tow truck 7.3 motor. Had a serious oil leak from my turbo. Took it to my mechanic they took the turbo out and found that it was leaking from this shaft the seal was gone. So now it's time to put the turbo back. And his saying if I can get the parts I have no idea what I'm buying and it would actually save me if I brought it he said. His saying my way of learning about what I have. Okay my problem is this who sells the gaskets kit or what I need to rebuild and put everything back. I have no idea what I'm looking for. Being from Hawaii (Oahu) it makes it hard to get the right parts. I could go to my local ford dealer but I'm sure they would rape me like they do with everything else I brought. Also upgrades while the turbo is out any suggestions as to what I should get and who from. Better if your a dealer I need someone I can work with. Mahalo RnC Towing

Pictures is the turbo out first picture is where the oil was leaking from the port his saying I need a gasket and o-ring.

Turbo rebuild

I would get a new billet compressor wheel from riff raff diesel and a 360* thrust washer rebuild kit from barder turbo. Total for all parts would be $300ish.

Also the wheel will help eliminate turbo surge while towing. Surge can cause turbo damage.

You can also do a delete pedestal and remove the ebpv on the turbo outlet. The valve in the pedestal has a tendency to leak. It's not necessary tho.

yes thats the pedestal,
go here
DieselOrings
he has a help page, showing how to rebuild a turbo,
he sells the rebuild kits also,

I just posted pictures of my rebuild,here,
,
Turbo Rebuild RiffRaff Billet and hight temp paint
,
and another place to look that shows it very nice is here
,
Barder's 360 bearing rebuild,XDP billet,Applied Performance - Diesel Forum - TheDieselStop.com

RiffRaff is also another great place to buy the parts also,
i got most there, but my pedestal i got from the "o" ring,

its not hard, just take your time,
if your mechanically inclined, its actually fun,
except for that back down pipe clamp, its a bear,

you can do it yourself and save ALOT OF MONEY,
if you do a new wheel GET IT BALANCED to the shaft,,thats MY opinion,
others say you don't have to,,

hope this helps some
john

Here is the delete pedestal and it's only $25 more. http://www.riffraffdiesel.com/garret...estal-99-5-03/
I'd delete it so it won't happen again.
