Hi all
Just a quick question has anybody replaced the internal like cassette inside a turbo ?? Showing a trace of oil coming through the intercooler so I think the oil seal in the turbo must be weeping not a great deal but these things only get worse so was wondering about just changing the internal mechanism rather than the whole unit cost about £100 ! So has anyone ever done it and got any advise ?? Cheers

A little bit of oil in the intercooler is normal - every one I have looked in always has a bit of oil in there.  Not sure I'd be changing the turbo on the basis of that alone.

Yes I understand there would be a bit of oil, have checked the rocker breather pipe and that's fine clear and clean ! a bit of sticky residue  in the big gauge pipe to the turbo but nothing serious.
Taken the pipe off the turbo leading to the intercooler and I have a trace of oil in that and while running the engine with the pipe off I can see a small spiral of oil coming up that outlet from the turbo.
Therefore I think the oil seal in the turbo is weeping ! !
So back to my original question been told it's not that hard to change the internal mechanism on the turbo but have heard some horror stories about cheap Chinese parts any idea where I could source a decent reliable replacement part ??
Hey I'm not a complete novice I've just put a new engine in the truck running sweet now I've discovered this issue with the turbo just want it to be right and reliable

what about trying one of the places that reconditions turbos - not sure if they would supply parts.  I've used Midland Turbo before and they were excellent.
