Yall fellows have fun with that, you hear? I did that 6 months ago for my '96 F-250 PSD, and went through all that crap of disassembly, and cleaning, and new o-rings (minus the internal o-rings, journey bearings, and pilot hearing), like an idiot...mainly because my local dealership refused to sell me a turbo rebuild kit, and I wasn't a member here, so I had no idea I could get one anywhere else except Garrett (Honeywell), and they don't like dealing with the public very much......SO.......Next week I am putting an aftermarket turbo assembly on my truck because my stock one "took, yet another, dump on me" and is blowing and burning, and leaking oil profusely! So, don't think I'm raggin on you, cause believe me brother, we've all been there, and we don't wanna go back unless we WANT to, and not because we HAVE to.
So, I feel your pain. But hopefully it will go easier the second time around, since I know all the "little tricks (wrench angles, etc...)." And by the time you get that old one off, and get ready to put the new one on...you'll know what I'm talking about.
