....just got my BB turbo and the shaft has play????

Its sort of urgent for me as I am going to install this tomorrow. I ordered a Turbonetics BB turbo and got it and was spinning the turbo by hand and it feels "loose". I cant reach the company I bought it from or Turbonetics to see if this is normal. Also, when I spin it, it seems to "rub" against the housing (guessing here). Is this normal because it has no oil in it? or did I receive a bad turbo? I have no way of measuring end shaft play, but dont want to put in a bad turbo. Please help!! Thanks in advance. If anyone can call me, that would be ok also. 304 993-9157 (cell)

Your should have zero in and out play and zero to very little lateral play in the shaft. If it moves enough to be concerned its bad especially if you think its rubbing the housing. Don't install send it back

side to side play is zero, but the up and down is noticeable. may keep trying to call Kevin at BWD. Thanks for the input.

Did you hear back from Kevin yet about the play? I'm considering buying the same turbo.

02 F-350 CC 4x4 Dually, SCMT, AFE Filter with Proguard 7, 4" Turbo back exhaust, 4.10L axle ratio, 6 speed manual, and a couple of gauges, TN turbo and the famous "Empty Wallet Mod"

Just spoke to the guy... the shaft play was just like the turbo he took off... but he got it on there and it's working fine and it's working great.

Talked to maintain yesterday and most things seem to be in order...went ahead with the install and took it for a test run. popped an IC boot loose (my fault) and put it back on. Runs great except for high EGT's. They seem to be around 150 above my stocker. I changed my intake when I had it apart from the S&B to the Ford AIS. I have been told by many that the AIS should flow plenty, again I dont know. I do know that my EGT's get high QUICKLY and I am not comfortable with that. I will try some different things and keep you guys posted. Thanks for all of the help.
