I appear to have led this thread WAY off topic , sorry about that folks .

I'm still trying to extract 3 pages of material from a 500+ page PDF , may have to result to screen shots to get the info and post it.

BTW: Baffin Island locals protest the proposed prison as cruelty to animals , saying the polar bears deserve better meals . Want the prison on Ellesmere Island , even polar bears don't go that far north.

Ok then , pages from the 3126E maintenance manual .

I ended up taking pictures of the laptop screen , complete with reflections , but I think all is readable . Like I said no mention of a measurement only look for contact between the wheel blades and the housing .

Of its truly 1/10”, that’s quite a lot (2.5 mm or so) and your compressor wheel would almost certainly be rubbing the housing at that. My guess is it’s not that much play. As others said, look for other signs. You can also try applying force while spinning it, the wheel shouldn’t contact the housing.

The turbo itself is rebuildable or I think there are a few upgrade options out there too. But I wouldn’t be in a hurry to pull it if it’s not contacting. On my 3126B it looks like the turbo bolts are likely to snap when I remove them, which would cause a whole other bunch of problems.

On 06 c7 I found play like you describe in my turbo.
I removed turbo convinced I needed a new one.
I went to a cat repair shop and they pulled me a rebuild one when I checked the wheel it felt just like mine with some play. I put mine back on and have been running it ever since

You are checking it at room temperature.
If you were to check it at operating temperature (which I would NOT recommend trying), you will find the tolerances much tighter due to thermal expansion.
You also need to consider the clearance for oil to lubricate the turbo.
It's loose for a reason.

Here’s the final chapter in this turbo thread.

I put everything back together. Drove 500+ miles and have no problems pop up.

I’ll continue driving it and keep an eye on everything.

Thanks again for the help.

I put a Banks kit on my '02 Dutch Star with ISC 350. Part of the install was replacing the turbo housing. I was surprised at how loose the impeller bearing was, but I ran it for thousands of miles with no problems

I check the turbo run out only when it is warm/hot due to expansion. Testing it cold will provide false operational clearance. However, .100" is a bit much when cold. Once under running temp the cold range of .015" to .025" is taken up.

As a former Cat dealer technician and supervisor in component rebuild I was taught that just moving one end of the shaft gave you a false indication of wear.
You were supposed to hold both ends of the shaft and move it to and fro making sure you didn’t twist the shaft and this would give you a true indication of play.
I have no idea what the spec was but you could use a dial indicator and see what you had and also check for marks on the wheel and turbo housing.

Thanks for the information. Upon reflection my original “guestament “ of amount of slop was grossly exaggerated. I have driven several miles since putting it back together without any trouble.
