I have had no luck on finding a rebuild kit... My 6.9 IDI decided to take a dump and upon buying a new (used) 89 7.3 parts truck i discovered that all the oil on the ground was from my injection pump leaking.. Then on top of that the Turbo is toast so i was looking for a rebuild kit for the ATS 086 turbo anybody know where to get one? ATS no longer sells the turbo and doesn't have a rebuild kit. So now i also have a 7.3 IDI engine and 4 (or 5?) speed manual trans up for grabs if anybody wants one apperently the engine only has 60,000 miles.

You can PM type4, he is a member on here. he is the only one that still has parts for the ATS. He hasn't been posting on here for a long time, but he is still a member on the oilburners dot net forums. typ4 there.

Check for a small metal tag on the turbo housing. If the 086 turbos are like the later ATS systems the turbo is made by Garrett, one of the most common turbo companies. Point being, the turbo itself had nothing to do with ATS, it's the one they chose to use. Most any local turbo shop should be able to rebuild it for you or furnish you with whatever parts you want.

I can rebuild your Turbo. I don't sell parts. Too many issues and variables.

That's standard procedure, any nut and bolt that's related to the exhaust system should be slathered with Never Seize when reassembling. Unfortunately some people don't.

That can be a real pain. Calls for a lot of ingenuity plus a good penetrant like PB Blaster. Without looking, can't remember if there's enough room to heat the outer housing with a torch.

Be sure and gob the Never Seize on both pieces. You might think it wouldn't last but I've found it made a difference years down the road.

Too bad that happened. That's supposed to be a slip fit and on these and bigger diesels there will be some black soot from a slight normal exhaust leakage. There's been a number of not too bright people who've cemented the two pieces together, maybe that's what a previous owner did to yours.
