How to Check Turbo Condition

Hey guys,

I wil be installing a PowerMax here in a little bit, and I will be listing my stock '03 turbo for sale in the classifieds. Before I sell it, I wanna make sure that it is in great condition, so that it's new owner will love it as much as I do.

How do I check for shaft play, and other general parts of the turbo? I will have the full intake off this weekend to install my new aFe Stage 3 intake, is there anything I can check with the turbo still mounted? I'm sure this is all easy questions, I have just never dove this deep into my truck before.

So what are some things I should be looking/watching out for?

grap the compressor wheel and move it back and forth. That is shaft play. A little is expected you just dont want it close to the housing. also look at the compressor for chips or bent blades.

I just lucked out. My dealership called me up and let me know I have $117.xx of credit there, and my diesel tech said it'd be an hour of labor for a turbo swap. At $95 an hour, I've got a free turbo swap. My truck has to go in anyways for the door lock to be repaired, and the alternator plug and fan plug both need replacing.

So push and pull it, or side to side? I'm gonna check everything out. If anyone needs an '03 turbo, let me know.

The tolerance is measured in axial play (in and out) and there should be no more then .091mm (0.0036in) for endplay. The radial play tolerance is 0.5mm (0.02in)

LOL, no not yet. I'm waiting for a buyer for this Elite turbo and then I will be ordering it from PTP. Hopefully they will honor the $1149 shipped deal that had going on a while back.
