Doug I sent you a PM to remind you there are
a number of steps required plus tools and
some parts needed to swap the exhaust wheel.

If you don't have everything to do the
change then buying the entire unit from
Marco is easier and faster.

best wishes, Steve

Steve,I do appreciate your concern if I am capable of doing my turbo. Thank you. In the 70's I had many early corvairs & Rampsides.I always did my own maintenance & repairs, including overhauls. I slalom raced a 64 Monza convert & did well with it. I built the engine, made my own 4 carb setups & that engine put out over 200 hp & turned well over 7000 rpm's. I still have a room full of 1st & 2nd place trophies that I took from the 911's. I think I can do this turbo repair myself.

Here's the latest , guys. I have found the turbine I have been looking for & should have it in a few days. For now, we ( my wife Ginny & I ) are going to take a couple of days off & stay on our boat in Newport Beach. There is an airshow this week end & they fly right over where we have the boat moored. ( free air show )
I'll probably get to doing the turbo next week. I'll keep you posted on the progress. BOY ! This is a GREAT forum. Thank all you guys for your input.
