Turbo Removal

I would like to thank all that gave me ideas to remove my turbo from my 9C Cat engine.

Here is what I fianlly did ................
Like someone said, it`s probably not my Turbo but the Actuator. He was right on, however, I did go ahead and removed the turbo but had to take out the exhaust brake as well as I could not get the two apart until I got them onto the ground. Once out, I looked up my exhaust brake on-line and found there was an up-grade, so I ordered it on-line and put it in instead of the old one. The actuator I took off the turbo, then sprayed my good penetrating oil (Kroil) into the top port and left it in for two days clamping the end of the rod in a vise jaw at which time I could actually pull and push the rod in and out. Seeing I had it freed up, I reinstalled my old actuator and the turbo now work correctly.

I also had to take the turbo to a local machinist as he had to surface grind the face of it where it bolts onto the exhaust manifold as the two openings were exhausting into each other (blow-by). Plus I installed all new gaskets and O rings.

Thanks again to all that helped me ............ McMac
