well son of a.... ok well guess ill have to post a few more times...anyway i think i found the culprit.... i was watching the turbo after i shut it off and i can see it "wobble" as it spins down. so im thinking this is the problem and if i look close at the fins of the wheel they look a little bent in the wrong direction at the edges near the casing so... now i just have to ether sorce a nice used one or spend money on a rebuild kit and a wheel ... >.> this is getting funner and funner buy the day
Uh, yeah, that wheel shouldn't wobble, so I think you're right. That sounds like where your problem is and the bent blades and such could be because of the wobble. Finding one in a local junkyard might be a possibility for you.
You can check the "For Sale" and "Parts Wanted" threads, too. You might get lucky. Check the site sponsor's websites, too. They can be VERY helpful.
Gotta get ready for the wife's party. Guests will be arriving in an hour and I still need to clean up and get dressed.
I forgot, you're new around here. Everyone on this site has an "Open Invitation" to my place. You missed a great party. I grilled bratwursts and schwenksteaks. Everyone brought side dishes (German food items, of course). German salads, three-layer chocolate deserts, sauerkraut, cherry/hazelnut cake, tomato slices with mozzerella appetizers, onion cake, and quark. I'm not gonna try to explain what quark is, so you'll just to come to a party and try it.
