Removing the turbo. 1993 F250 Factory IDIT
I have read many of the threads regarding removing turbos from the engines but I really don't get it.
I have 1993 factory turbo IDIT. Ext cab 4x4 manual trans F250 with A/C.
I have done the following:
removed the alt, fuel filter, the inj lines, harness/gp solenoid.
I have removed the 2 nuts and 2 bolts holding the pipe that runs from the crossover and right exhaust manifold to the turbo.
I removed the bellhousing bolt that secures the other pipe to the bellhousing, and removed the clamp that holds that pipe to the turbo unit, this "other" pipe is now completely loose and free from the turbo.
I removed the center bolt on the conch-shell shaped thing in the middle of the intake manifold (one bolt center), and removed the two bolts on the bracket immediately behind that conch shaped thing. I removed the oil feed line from the block to the turbo unit.
I can rock the entire thing. I also removed much of the heat shielding, but I cant get the heat shield on the back of the pipe that runs down to the crossover, seems like it may be clamped somewhere.
Everything rocks nicely, so I'm pretty sure stuff is loose. Anyone know something I may have missed?
