About 6 months ago I replaced my turbo with a new one (It was off someone who never fitted it so secondhand and cheap) because I was using oil. I couldnt see any smoke out the back so wasnt sure where it was going but the turbo seemed most likly.
When I removed the turbo there was about 3mm of play in the shaft which is why I thought the turbo was gone and using oil.
I fitted the new one (That had no play in the shaft) and it was still using oil (Again no smoke) so i thought that maybe the turbo was fine after all.
My car had hit 100k+ now so I have stripped it down and started on the rebuild I have again noticed the 3-4mm play in the shaft.
Is the shaft ment to have that much play or have I some how killed another turbo?????????
