    Yeah I don’t like playing with rotating assemlies and tight tolerances. Let the folk that know what they are doing have the work.

    I think you got my point, but I wasn't especially clear...
    Guess what I was trying to say, rotating assemblies that spin 7000 rpm, OK, I can do that.
    The ones that spin 20k+ ... that's time for a professional.

    Turbo rebuilt. And we still have white smoke at start up. Valve seals next.

    On edit. The turbo was in need of a rebuild. Internals were burned up pretty good and the seal was starting to let go.

    Bummer on still getting white smoke, but good that you rebuilt your turbo that needed it anyway. Are you pulling your head for the stem seals or just doing it in place?

    I am going to try in with the head on. Been reading up here and have the Esslinger tool on order.

    Well that seemed to do the trick. The old seals were hard and brittle. Several fell apart while being removed. And, unlike the replacement set, the old ones did not seem to have different seals for the intake and exhaust. The Esslinger tool works good. Let me know if you need one. It cost me $75 plus shipping. Ill sell this one for $60 shipped. And the car is for sale too. I have made her better and can now say I have owned one. Time to move on to the next project. Check out the classifieds if you are interested.

    Glad to hear the new seals went in well using the tool. The factory seals were the same intake/exhaust, so sounds like you still had the originals. They changed the design sometime in the late 80's/early 90's to change the exhaust seals to handle the heat better, as they were typically the seals to crust up first. Good luck with the sale.
