I didn't take pictures because I had the T3 sheet from this seller (click on kit)

It gives a real good idea for the sequence of parts.

The sheet along with reasonable mechanic logic and you should be fine. If your not sure about your level of abilities, I would take pictures when opening / separating the compressor wheel / side so that various new parts are put back correctly.

Take your time
I had to grind off a couple of bolts on the turbo. Access to them is poor and rounded easily. I would suggest soaking with penetrating oil for a day or so (maybe you can get them out).
Determine the correct kit and parts. (what type of compressor seal you have)
There are 3 marks supplied (after balancing) shaft/turbine wheel, nut and compressor wheel - they need to line up

Here is the link to Ron's Turbo Service on eBay.
