Turbocharger Question

My brother found a turbo at the local dump last week, pulled from a Caterpillar engine. I called the local Cat shop, nad found out it was originally installed on a 3116, but the parts guy couldn't tell me what type of turbo it is. Part # is 103-2085, serial # is C2EG069. It has a 6-blade impeller and 10-blade turbine.

The turbo is seized, and I'd like to get a rebuild kit for it. Anybody have any ideas what type of turbo this is? I'll post pics if needed. Thank you!

Welcome , I'll just say this for your quest, sometimes the term " beyond economical repair " means just that.
I don't know when the 3116 engine was last in production , but rebuilding this turbo , might just get you an expensive, mantle ornament.
JMHO; of course.

Well Sir, I'm always up for saving a buck too. Now, I've never had to deal with a turbo, defective or not. I have no idea if it's feasible to rebuild them and come out economically ahead or not. I know there's bearing(s) in them and, seals etc. Is it possible for the average guy to disassemble them and do a rebuild, this is interesting.
