Is this compressor wheel dusted? The shaft has a little play but spins freely with no resistance.
If one has excess "side to side" play that is a radial bearing issue, changing the impeller wheel alone won't change that bearing element condition.So would I just replace the compressor wheel or do I need to rebuild the entire turbo? Sorry I’m new to turbo diesel engines. Looks like a Severe Duty AIS is in the future for me because I live in the desert.
Man i think it was like water/ethanol injection for more running more boost 🤣🤣🤣😂😂Was the chicken manure like a propane boost?
I agree 100% !!!Side to side play - rebuild it. End to end - probably ok to let it go until your quarter million mile tune up. I would suggest evaluating your filtration system. I switched early to the Ford Severe Duty AIS and my wheel looked nearly new when I rebuilt mine. (Of course, it retired when I put on the RiffRaff billet wheel.)
