O.K. the new turbo is in, what a hassle...

Well, I found out it's easier to get one out of a junkyard car with parts out of the way than to get mine out and the new one in. I was deluding myself into thinking it would go right in, but I couldn't figure out how to do it without pulling off the intake and exhaust manifolds. Is there some special wrench that will get that final nut of the turbo?
Anyway, I get it in, and the realize because the used turbo I got doesn't have a air recirculating valve, there a gap where the inlet on the turbo doesn't reach the u-tube! So, on the aircleaner mount has two sets of holes for the rubber mounts, it takes a little drilling out, but with he air filter moved back it just reaches the inlet. Whew!
Now the squeeling noise is gone, and every thing seems to be working, so all the hassle was worth it....

I don't find removing the turbo a hassle at all. It just takes a few times to learn all the little directions of attack and movements you can get with a 17mm wrench. I've removed/installed the turbo on my TD about 8 times now for different reasons. Each time it was much less hassle.

Last wendsday in a scrapyard, I pulled a bad turbo off a '79 SD in less than 2 minutes. I was getting the non-EGR manifolds off of it.
