Technician Turbocharger Guide for the 6.0L Power Stroke Engine

Interesting read... I learned a couple things and figured I would share.

Link worked for me. Haven't read it yet, but saved it to the computer in the same file as the 6.0l bible. I'll read it a little later. Thanks for posting.

that shows a good pic of the oil supply piston. you can physically move that piston with a 4lb magnet to verify free movement of the vanes before turbo installation

Where do you access it with a magnet? Through the solenoid bore?

I would be more concerned with that piston being sludged up causing improper vane sweep more than the vanes coking up after seeing a nice cut away like that.

My '04 and '03 turbo were only lightly sooty in the turbine housing and vanes assembly. No dirtier than if you wiped your finger inside the exhaust pipe. Both had 80 to 90k miles on them. It barely took any effort to clean everything and reassemble.
